Stitched Textiles

Christine's aims are to comment upon or mark significant events using cloth and stitch. Her sources are identity, memory and a sense of place.  Key influences are the work of Paul Klee,

Louise Bourjeois and many contemporary textile artists working today and earlier.

Hand coloured calico and silk are stitched and applied to painted surfaces.  Her latest work combines Christine's fine art background and her love of stitch, melding together painted surfaces with machine and hand stitched areas.  The use of stitch is another means of mark-making used in a predominantly simple way, hand and machine stitch build up surface texture.
