Each day we hope to feature two artists and their work:
Today we have work by Caroline Bell and Liz Mullenger
Caroline Bell is a textile artist who maintains an ethically and ecologically sound approach to her practice. She works on paper and cloth which she colours and marks with natural substances. These she then works into using often very intensive hand stitching.
Inspiration is often derived from nature and the world around although change, time and the passing of the seasons are also recurrent themes
Caroline was Embroiderers Guild Scholar 2014-5 and her work has been featured in several publications both in the UK and internationally.
My work is very much inspired by our natural world. I often using Ice Dyeing as a technique to create interesting coloured fabric. I also use Machine embroidery to embellish designs. This year I have used my textile work to express my concerns about the environment and Brexit with *What a load of Rubbish” and “If you can hold your head up high whilst those about you are loosing theirs!”
