Another of Barbara’s amazing textile collage.
Barbara creates art in textiles and ‘paint’ with fabric, making images by hand-stitching small pieces of material together in layers. She hope’s to interpret subjects in a fresh way which encourages viewers to take a second look.
She is a self-taught artist having started experimenting with fabrics after sewing patchwork quilts. Her work includes elements of both art and craft which reflects her interest in Impressionist paintings and the process of handcrafting. The subjects she stitches include buildings, creatures, plants, landscapes and still lives.
As well as regularly exhibiting in galleries and exhibitions in the south of England she has recently been Artist-in-Residence at two National Trust properties: Chastleton House, a 17thC House in the Cotswolds and Claydon House, an 18thC House in Buckinghamshire. In 2014 she was awarded a prize for Excellence in Craft in Oxfordshire and a picture was bought for Oxfordshire County Museum collections. Her work has also featured in magazines such as Cotswold Life, Be Creative with Workbox and Craft and Design as well as an Australian and an American publication.
