This unique embroidered artwork is developed directly from a life drawing and handmade using freehand machine embroidery with pre-loved fabrics on artist’s linen.

In her thread drawings Juliet explores the experience of being a woman: empowerment,strength, sensuality, self love, vulnerability and our connections with others. She conveys a sense of a woman’s inner landscape and her connection to her environment. Her most recent work explores her own personal response to Covid-19 and experience of the pandemic.

Juliet says, “I choose to work in thread, using the sewing machine as a drawing tool, as I love the extremely expressive quality of the thread drawn line. All of my pieces begin as pencil/ mixed media drawings on paper, working directly from the life model. In designing the thread drawings, I carefully choose colours, patterns, textures from my large collection of preloved fabrics to convey the emotion, character and atmosphere that I wish to communicate in the piece.”

This piece was lovingly created by

Juliet D Collins (Prahran)
