Stitched up

Stitched up

These are embroidered and collaged pieces from my final project from the MA in Children's Book Illustration. I was experimenting using the medium of textiles to create characters.

I used the sewing machine to draw, collaging textiles, buttons, wool and lace together to create a series of large scale portraits which are approximately A3 in size.
