Embroidery Magazine, September/October 2016
From the Embroiderers Guild UK.
Janet de Boer continues her excellent series on Australian artists with a look at the practice of embroiderer Meredith Woolnough (page 24) whom we are delighted to feature on our cover.
On the Cover - Turning Over a New Leaf: Australian artists Meredith Woolnough has long been inspired by nature which she captures in her beautiful embroidery. Mesmerised by the shapes and forms she observes on land and in the sea, Meredith's delicate embroideries capture the wonder of nature without harming the environment. "I hope that people will see my work as the piece of coral that you can feel good about putting in your home". Finely honed craftsmanship enhances the artistic impact of her work. The outcome of this is a series of sculpted embroideries with a clear modern aesthetic, both compelling and memorable.
