Framed artwork print of an original embroidered textile artwork by Juliet D Collins
The framed print measures 16 x 21cm
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.
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.”
Mistress of the Chickens is also available as an original embroidered artwork. It is developed directly from a life drawing and individually handmade using freehand machine embroidery with pre-loved fabrics.
