Bridget is an award-winning Fibre Artist. Layers of thread create shading effects. Much like pencil crayon but using stitching techniques, traditional piecing and quilting techniques. Currently, this work explores the use of sustainable materials, natural and hand dyed, organic fabrics. Inspired by nature and biodiversity this art introduces the fragile aspects of the environment. Species at risk, traditional and historically significant fibre crafts are highlighted.
