Artist Statement

Chileli means little church in Swiss German and the idea for this piece came from a particular train journey that Sonia used to take when she was living in Switzerland.  The train would wind in and out of the mountain and pass the town of Wassen and you would see their Chileli from 3 different angles in the space of a few minutes.  It was this journey that she wanted to represent with the gold train going through the black tunnels.  Sonia now lives in London where she is studying at the Royal School of Needlework and is training to become a hand embroidery tutor.
