Portrait of an Engineer
For the last month I've been working on a piece called Portrait of an Engineer, it is very large 62 x 71cm and my process is very slow, as someone recently remarked 'Wow I didn't realise you sew a single stitch at a time', yes I do! all my work is stab stitched, because I like the way the resulting stitches lie on top of the fabric, stitching in this way also allows you to be extremely accurate and keep the fabric relatively flat while you work.
My work is constructed from pieces of silk organza that I cut with scissors and then layer together to create a collage.
I'm making this piece and two more for London Craft Week at Mint.
