Anne Kelly Textiles

Textile artist

Tunbridge Wells, Kent


embroidery, mixed media, installation


£350 — £3000


Anne collects recycled fabric, paper and ephemera using collage, stitch, photographic and print processes to create a range of work, framed and free hanging.

Her inspirations are taken from travel and memory and naïve, outsider and folk art. Her heavily embroidered and textural works have been described as ‘small worlds’, with a small scrap or remnant of fabric that can inspire a whole piece
