A completely unique item.
As far as I am aware I am the only person who makes art in this way. I studied painting and drawing, and then textile design at art school. My process is a fusion of these disciplines that has evolved over the last 40 years.
My favourite subjects are storms, reflections in water, skies and the landscape in which I live and work.
I live close to the Atlantic west coast of northern France. We get some dramatic storms blowing in at times. Since a young child I have always been thrilled by storms, particularly the power, the energy in the atmosphere and the way in which the light changes. This storm was at Granville Sur Mer.
Multiple layers (around 30) of watercolour pencil were applied to both the front and reverse of a translucent fabric, and then blended with a fine brush, giving a 3 dimensional quality to the finished watercolour. I then use machine embroidery to highlight and enhance areas of the piece – literally drawing again as if the needle was a pencil, which gives further depth to the completed image.
The work comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity
My pieces are supplied mounted with quality mounting board of a colour that shows the work at its best (in this case ivory). The mount is cut to a standard size so you can choose your own off the shelf frame.
