Stewart Francis Easton


Sorry for the lack of posts of late.  If you have ever had a frozen shoulder you will know how excrutiating the pain in your arm and back can be.  To date still not 100%.

Stewart Francis Easton is a British artist whose work focuses on craft, illustration and fine art.  His approach to embroidery is abstract modern based on tradition and rituals applying folk song, story and social history.  He has received an MA in illustration and animation and has had a number of solo and group shows in the UK and USA.  He writes this about himself:

” I draw. I sew. I ride a push bike and I like Clarks shoes.”

You can view more of his work on his website and on Instagram.
