I just wanted to share with you the lovely textile and embroidery work of artist Maxine Sutton. I think her work is absolutely beautiful….she combines hand and machine embroidery, screen printing, and appliqué techniques, to create really gorgeous, simple, fresh canvases and textile pieces. Her semi-abstracted pieces bring together themes of everyday familiar objects, the ‘home’ and our interaction with our environment.
Maxine uses a mixture of natural organics such as cotton, hemp, linen and wool with found, recycled & vintage materials. Her work has been shown at the Geffrye Museum, London, the Brighton Art Fair, Craft Central and The Crafts Council, England.
