About Me

My photo
After graduating from Art College with a Foundation Degree in Applied Arts. I have decided to focus on textiles and creating textile art, using a range of media and surface embellishments. I have recently started a two year course which is focused on design and stitched textiles worked and embroidered by hand and on the sewing machine. I love the mix of traditional and contemporary elements, as I love the history of embroidery and stitches and enjoy sampling and experimenting with them to make them contemporary. Living near to Durham City I am close to endless sources of inspiration to use in my work. Please note all text and images are subject to copyright © Emma Mears

busy - busy - busy...

...well it's been really busy - I have had no time to blog - I am now finished my last project and will be completing my foundation degree in Applied Arts in June - then out into the world of self-employment.  Here are some sneaky pics of what I will be displaying at my degree show in June...x
