Stranded embroidery floss on cotton print fabric
Dimensions: 48 x 57cm
Fiona is an award winning textile artist based in the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales. She works under her social media name, Marmaladerose and is best known for her wildlife artworks created from wool using the wet felting technique. These ‘wool paintings’ of hares, birds and field mice are created completely freehand and are full of colour and wonderful textures.
Being a self confessed introvert, her work is driven by the need to create an escape from the pressures of modern day living and a desire to make something beautiful that will bring a smile to the viewer.
In a change of discipline…. Fiona’s first ever hand embroidered portrait won The Knitting and Stitching Shows Self Portrait Competition in 2020 and she is hoping to explore this medium more fully using hand stitching to create portraits full of life and emotion.
Fiona has received invitations to teach in Australia, exhibit in Hong Kong and guest present on a TV craft channel. She regularly exhibits her work in the Lake District and has work in private collections as far afield as Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
