Dee Thomas

I create images that echo my knowledge of a particular place or experience. By having an art background rather than embroidery, I never feel restricted about using any particular medium or technique and willingly combine stitch with whatever seems appropriate to the piece. I am drawn to detail and I have a large collection of sketches and photographs that reflect this interest. Imperfections caused by time or man also feature in my collection. Colour, either subtle or bright, always excites me and I care very much about finding the desired shade or tone.

TEXTILE PRACTICE
Whether representational or abstract, drawing is fundamental to my work. I think of my sketchbook as a continuation of the thought process. Each piece evolves through the process of fragmentation and reconstruction, by printing, patching, layering and stitching.
