The cat in the shoe

soft sculpture and textile artist

Poole, Dorset


textiles, sewing, repurposed material


£310 — £310


Fabric is a forgiving and flexible medium to work with, it can become anything it wishes even though it began its life as something else. An old jumper, an unloved leather jacket, a scrap of lace and an offcut of felt. In my mind these could become a whimsical being straight from the pages of a book you read as a child. A world of imagination and possibility expressed through the medium of repurposed materials. Stitched stuffed and embellished by hand and machine.
