Plant Sitter Embroidered Textile Artwork by Juliet D Collins (Fitzroy)

The Gardener is an exquisite little embroidered textile artwork expressing a woman’s connection to her natural environment. It is developed directly from a life drawing and individually handmade using freehand machine embroidery with pre-loved fabrics.

The artwork measures 18 x 23cm and comes window mounted on quality mat board, ready to be framed. Size including Mount Board: 25 x 20cm.

In these 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.”

The Gardener is available as a greetings card
