A mixture of recent artwork



A heart with some French Knots and Poetry.

Heart with French Knots

Heart by theresa mARTin


Detail of the Heart.

This is a 6″ x 6″ piece of embroidery on cloth using French Knots in the motif of the Heart.


Detail of a collage. This part is a transfer using TAP.


For this piece I made a collage in Photoshop and printed it out onto Lesley Riley’s TAP (Transer Artist Paper). This became the centerpiece for a collage made with paper, thread and cloth.
