Esther Collins

I am a textile and mixed media artist who combines fabric, paper and stitch. I enjoy dying and printing my own fabric and paper and work using both machine embroidery and hand stitching, building up textile collages and machine embroidered pictures and vessels.

Sources of inspiration include the natural environment, plants, flowers and walking in the South Downs. With a background in history of art and graphic design, I also enjoy referencing artists and historical design in my work. Sketchbooks, experimentation and making samples are an important part of my design process.

I work from my home studio in West Sussex and enjoy running workshops and courses in machine embroidery and textile art.
