Get to Know Me
My work is inspired by a happy upbringing in the beautiful British Countryside. From picking veg from our family patch; to naming the type of birds on the feeder; to spotting the flash of a fox in the distance! All of these small joys in life continue to influence my art.
Rose of Stitching was formed from a unique love of embroidery. Learning to sew aged 11, from day one I was hooked - every spare evening, weekend and summer holiday was spent at my grannies old sewing machine creating. It wasn't long before I discovered free machine embroidery, allowing me to draw with stitch. Over the years I have developed my own process and style: first, hand drawing and painting the artwork before stitching layers and layers of detail with a variety of coloured threads to create a uniquely tactile surface.
I have been running my business while also attending Loughborough University studying Textiles: Innovation and Design specialised in Print design where I have just graduated with a first class honours! I also completed a fantastic Placement Year working for Nutmeg (Morrisons clothing brand) as an assistant graphic designer for both
fashion and homewares.
Sadly due to COVID I have been unable to have access to my stored stock or attend any art shows so my business, like so many, has had to take a step back. Now we are (fingers crossed) starting to come out of the pandemic I hope to re launch in October 2021, in time for Christmas!
I hope you enjoy exploring my creative space! Please do get in touch with any queries!
