"Cutting through'' machine and hand embroidery 43cmx70cm
Welcome to the website of Fiona Robertson
I am a visual artist working through the medium of textiles.
Although I originally trained in Fine Art I have a passion for textiles. Working with stitch changes the way you see your surrounding environment. The world becomes a series of rhythms, line,colour, pattern and texture.
My inspiration comes from all around me. I am constantly struck by the play of light on the landscape, colours soft and muted by rain or sharp and exaggerated by the sun, possibilities for work are endless.
I build each piece from hand dyed silk , cotton scrim and other fibres. Surfaces are machine stitched and then hand stitched to add detail. A piece of work can take anything up to 2 months to complete.
Creating imagery based on personal experience, sketchbooks and photography is my passion.
I hope you enjoy my website, new works will be added regularly.
