Apart from painting I have many creative hobbies I dabble in. I’d love to say making clothes was one of them, but my sewing machine gets employed for a different purpose.
I first started using my sewing machine to do collage on gift cards. Recently, having admired the work of artists like Jude Fenton and Cayce Zavaglia, I thought I’d give it a go on some of my smaller landscape paintings I’ve been working on.
The texture of the thread creates beautiful shadows and adds an animation to my pieces that I would struggle to create with paint. In particular I’m thrilled with how this piece really evokes the feeling of wind on the hill tops of a wild New Zealand Landscape.
