Barbara Westwell BA Hons

Textile Artist

I work with textiles, mostly recycled and hand-dyed, using photographs I've taken on my travels both for inspiration and for printing on to fabric. I quilt my pieces and display them in unglazed wooden frames I also make myself. I also enjoy paper collage which I find perfect for architectural subjects with more detail. This year I have added weaving in linen, cotton and recycled silk to create more texture in my stitched pictures.

I was voted in to the top 11 SAOS artists from 2011 to 2014, and exhibited at the Surrey Artist of the Year Exhibitions at the New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham.
