About Carol

This blog is about my passion for textiles. My own work and that of others will be shown as well. I was involved in education for many years, and started free lancing in 1997. There is a world outside lecturing as I discovered! I also curate exhibitions and have a strong interest in Art in the Healthcare environment.

I make machine embroidered textiles for public and private venues. I stitch directly onto painters canvas with a range of rayon, cotton, woollen and metallic threads. Continual packed lines of stitches causes undulations in the base fabric which I leave in and work with as part of the creative process. Work has been purchased for public and corporate collections and by many private clients worldwide

I have exhibited and taught throughout the UK, in the USA, New Zealand, in France and Portugal. My work has featured in many publications.

You can see a full CV and gallery on my website which has regular updates regarding exhibitions and other work

  1. Hi Carol, just watching BBC Four craft programme and was delighted to see your work featured! Patsy

    • Hi Patsy thanks so much. I was away in Seville so havent seen it it yet but had lots of great messages from people. Went back to Ireland to teach in May so maybe some more Irish landscapes will eventually emerge
