Corinne is a textile artist who creates embroidered 3D artwork using handmade linen paper and vintage fabrics.
Corinne’s work is inspired by the flowers and insects she studies in her garden, antique botanical books and the artefacts to be found in historic houses.
The floral aspect gives her work its colour, texture and form, and the methods she uses, the style of the work and its 3D quality comes from the study of historic artefacts such as 17th century stump work caskets.
Corrine likes to use vintage fabrics and papers to create her work, and also loves to stitch into her handmade linen paper, which she makes in large sheets in her studio.
The finished artworks are delicate in feel and reflect the complexity and fragility of their subject matter. All pieces are designed, made, constructed and finished by Corinne. Everything she produces is made with great care, and takes many hours to create.
Corinne exhibits widely throughout the UK. Commissions include an installation at Burton Constable Hall, publicity panels for the Lord of the Rings stage productions, and botanical artworks for the Modern Pantry Restaurant. She recently took part in an interior/exterior exhibition with a Chelsea Gold medal winning garden designer, and had her work featured in Country Living magazine.
We are delighted she is taking part in our Textile Exhibition FIBRE as she has not exhibited in Hebden Bridge before.
