Are you looking for a unique piece of textile art e.g. Seascape, shorelines, mountain landscape, family home or bereavement art piece that will capture the true rugged essence of the landscape/flora & fauna that is dear to your heart?
Are you looking for a larger installation that requires a site visit, light & colour analysis, measuring & mapping out of area along with a detailed design process?
HOW DOES THE COMMISSION PROCESS START?
Firstly, choose a frame, colour & size. My small commission piece 23x23cm fully framed starts at €125.
I like to get a good selection of photographs from the client of what they are trying to capture in the textile art piece. This will give me a true representation of the surroundings.
I draw up a mindmap with the name of the piece as the centre point then stemming from this all important features to be added to the piece.
I work from a series of sketches mostly coloured in thumbnails.
The most important part and most time consuming is the colouration process. Putting together all the coloured fibres, wool, woven textures & liaising with client at all stages to make sure I’m on the right track.
I always find until I start working on the textile art piece, it is only then, I get a true sense for what is working & what is not.
From here I secure the art piece within the frame, name it & sign it.
