Hand embroidery and appliqué on vintage fabric
Dimensions: 43 x 53 cm
Yvette is a textile and embroidery artist based in Oxfordshire. Vintage fabrics are central to her practice, not just for their aesthetics, but for how they connect with lives and memories. Textiles can provoke an emotional response, and have an inherent history that makes transforming them a meaningful process, preserving fragments of times past in a contemporary way. As well as recycling something that would otherwise be discarded, they give a resonance and sense of a past life to her work. She combines these textiles with appliqué and hand embroidery to create a rich palette of colours, patterns and textures; imbuing birds and small mammals with life and individual character, colour combinations that sing, and a sense of atmosphere.
The purchase price for her work does not include delivery costs (these would be calculated based on delivery location and shipping method).
