‘BARK!’, a truly unique piece of textile art featuring contemporary illustration on a piece of beautiful vintage fabric.
I source vintage fabrics and embroideries from across the UK, and adds to them with my quirky illustrative style, using contemporary fabrics, threads and beads to create these lovely pieces of art that appeal across the age range, and look wonderful in any setting.
‘BARK!’ features a cheeky little pug surrounded by wonderful vintage embroidered flowers, and is a one off piece.
I’ve used part of a vintage tablecloth as the base for this piece, in a lovely natural ivory shade, with the hand embroidered flowers making the perfect frame for the pug centrepiece which has been created with a combination of applique, hand and machine embroidery, beads and hand sewn ribbon.
The picture is completed with a flat matt black wooden frame, glazed with high quality styrene/acrylic that is indistinguishable from glass.
The frame measures approx. 12×14″ (approx. 30x35cm)
