Living in an area of outstanding natural beauty Sue is influenced by the landscape around her in North Devon. Her work seeks to bring you the essence of the place she has been to, the colours, the textures, the feel of the place rather than an accurate depiction. Autumn is one of her favorite seasons and the browns, golds, reds, and yellows of this season feature highly in her work.
Sue dyes most of the fabrics she uses, either with rust or with natural plant dyes that she makes from plants in her garden or grows on her allotment. Other colours are added using recycled materials.
Beauty in Winter
This piece is a textile landscape using Sue’s own hand-dyed fabrics. Sue has used rust dyed and Eco-dyed material along with recycled sari silks and machine stitching.
This piece is based on “Codden Hill” in North Devon. The hillside is covered in bracken and Silver Birch trees and in the winter the bracken dies back turning the whole hillside wonderful shades of browns.
This piece has been professionally framed in a light wood frame with glass in front of it. This piece measures 57 cm x 45 cm x 2 cm.
