I been exploring surface textile design, print and stitch over a decade.
My inspiration comes from the natural world, birds, language and poetry. I seek to capture the myriad beauty, patterns and designs found in nature. I love working with colour; exploring shapes, texture and building layers through stitch and collage; often recycling materials, paper, shim and other found objects. My work is both quirky and illustrative.
I am a member of the Association of Midland Artists and The Embroiderers Guild. I regularly exhibit at Warwickshire Open Studios.
I recently undertook a big commission with University Hospital Coventry and Warwick for the Radiology Department. Recent exhibitions include work shown at The Leamington Pump Room Gallery, Market Gallery, Rotherham, Jam Factory Oxford and Althorpe Studios. I run workshops and give talks about my work. Commissions taken. See my website www.fionametcalfe.co.uk
