This piece is made by selecting fabrics to create a picture. The fabrics are layered and sewn in place using free motion embroidery, a technique which uses my sewing machine as a drawing tool. The background to this piece is made using inktense pencils to create a colour wash effect.
I have a great love of horses… their beauty, size and grace all compel me to draw them and make art to reflect their spirit. This piece captures a moment of stillness, of poise, of potential movement. Horses are flight animals, and even at their most relaxed are instantly alert and ready to move if they deem it necessary.
