You’ll learn about their journeys, plus why and how they make their mark in the world of modern art. You’ll also enjoy a huge array of high quality inspiring images of their work.
You’ll share in the story of Nigel Cheney, an artist we’ve featured many times on TextileArtist.org and someone we admire for the scale of his ambition and his unique take on a well-worn subject matter. Alongside him you’ll find Melissa Zexter, who creates embroidered photography, and Jean Littlejohn, who is internationally renowned for both her art and her teaching.
You’ll also be invited into the worlds of textile designer and illustrator Naomi Ryder and figurative artist Nicole Ladrak. And you’ll take a glimpse into the processes of Caren Garfen, who uses textiles to explore women’s issues in the 21st century, James Hunting, who started life as a freelance fashion embroiderer before discovering a more personal approach, and Willy Schut, who uses a combination of painting, appliqué and freehand machine embroidery.
