Profile

Helen has been making textiles since 1989. Her work is exhibited both at home and abroad and her textiles are featured in books and publications.

When I first began making decorative textiles I had to have an actual ceramic piece as my inspiration. Its shape, form and colours spurred me on with the design. I loved recreating these three dimensional pieces in stitches. Nowadays, most of my depicted vessels don’t exist. They are figments of my imagination. And what I find most exciting is that my initial design bears little resemblance to the finished embroidery. The patterns, shapes and colours change and evolve as I work the piece.
