Lorna Abel – Textile Artist
Dyed fabrics and printed materials are layered on to felt to form the machine embellished background to my textiles. Machine and hand stitching is then applied to develop the images. The relationships of colour and texture are paramount to the content.
Landscapes and flowers are important in the designs of my work. Birds have also inspired my work using pattern and colour in an artistic way.
The movement and moods of the ever changing sea is captured and expressed in stitch.
