Alison Holt

Totally amazed by these machine embroidered landscapes and seascapes created by British textile artist, Alison Holt. Her process of painting in stitches is as follows:  ‘Each piece is a combination of silk painting and stitch. The painting creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture.’

and her artist statement:
‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the detail in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’
