Pine Marten



The Pine Marten moves in a quiet, secret world of trees and branches, leaves and sky. Out walking, you look up, a flash of gold among the foliage. A pause, breath held, you see her, she sees you. A connection sparks between you before, in the blink of an eye, she is gone. You walk on, through your day, touched by your encounter, and the joy it brings.




This piece of textile art is created by layering up many small pieces of fabric to create interesting effects and textures. These are stuck in place and then sewed over using my sewing machine. I use a technique called free motion stitching where I draw with the threads, and in this case, as I draw with threads over the little pieces of fabric the edges ruffle and become frayed creating beautiful textures and effects. I use the fabrics as you would use paint, each little piece is like a brushstroke, another piece of the whole work. All the fabrics I use are offcuts and unwanted bits and pieces that are too small for other creative people to use, so they donate them to me!
