Personally embroidered portraits

sizes varies but generally 12"x18"

These portraits are created from photographs. I use a combination of machine and hand stitch and found fabrics. The fabrics used are often fragments of the subjects own discarded clothing. 

As an example I have shown the original photo next to the embroidered piece. This piece was selected as a finalist in the judging for the National Art and Craft Awards at the RDS in 2012.

CataLOG is a representation of clothes that I have worn throughout my life. Each of the 42 layers are interspersed with a layer of cotton scrim. 

Previous commissions have included 40th and 50th birthday gifts that have been personally created for each recipient.

If you would like to commission your own CataLOG please contact me and I will be happy to discuss the project with you.
