Christine Benson is a textile artist/maker and independent tutor specialising in creating and teaching stitched and embroidered work.
"My work comes from within, influenced by my surroundings, integrated with my love of music and history to produce emotive abstract images. My use of materials, layers of natural silk fibres, create sensitive sometimes fragile hand dyed surfaces that are then stitched. Some pieces are so intensely worked that the stitch becomes an integral part of the whole fabric. Individually the 'materials' are tenuous, insubstantial, but my way of working gives a strength that is both symbolic and complete."
