Painting with Stitches – Shirley Drayton
2 July 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 28 July 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Shirley derives inspiration from her extended family, respect for those who fought for the freedom of others, the beauty of the land, sea and sky, plus rustic old buildings.
With fabric, dyes and stitch, Shirley tries to portray the celebration of family stories and memories plus the beauty of nature. She explores the tactile nature of fabrics, the range of textures and colours and enhances her work with thread. More recently Shirley is incorporating paint, making her work more mixed media.
Shirley enjoys the finished product as well as the process of creating. Finding a sense of achievement, of having been challenged and enjoyment in the work as an art piece. This is enhanced by the pleasure others receive from viewing or receiving her work.
