Arise and Shine is a print of an original textile embroidery piece.
"Morning have always been a mess for me. So much to do and so little time before one has to leave the comforts of home and face the outside world. This is the scene from our bedroom in our old house in London. It was during a season where I had to leave for work earlier than my husband. In order for us to have time to read the bible and pray, he would chase me around the house as I got ready, trying to read words of encouragement before landing a kiss on my cheek and 'slam' out the door I would run.
This image is also a reminder to me of the story of Moses; when he saw God on the mountain, his face shone. No lotion or facial, no scrub or make-up can match that look. There is a promise to cling onto, that no matter the amount of time I can spend getting my face and body ready to meet the world, when I spend time in his presence, seeking his glory, my face too will shine."
A variety of fabrics were used to show an everyday bedroom scene. The intricate detail of the scene was crafted through a mixture of hand machine embroidery and hand embroidery.
The image is printed on fine art card. The image itself measures approximately 6x8 and fits nicely in a standard 8x10 frame.
The print comes in a cellophane bag with firm backing board and a description of the meaning behind the print. Item will be shipped in a protective envelope.
Meet the Maker
Using antique fabrics and lace, I use my needle as my brush and fabrics as my paint to capture the word of God in the everyday, creating unique Christian textile art.
As a child, growing up in Devon, I loved nothing more than spending hours with boxes, glue, tape and whatever I could get my hands on, to make and create a new project... Later as a primary school teacher I was always using my creativity in the classroom. It wasn't until I became pregnant with my first son that a friend taught me how to use a sewing machine to make textile art for the nursery. Suddenly I was hooked on freestyle machine embroidery.
We spent nine years in London where my husband served as Vicar of a church in South West London. During that time I started making textile art pieces for friends as presents for birthdays or when people were going through hard times. It became a practical way of using my hands in prayer for them. As I sewed I was praying in God's hope and comfort - trusting that I was bringing God's word to life in their situation.
My hope is that the embroidery art cards and Scripture prints that I create will give people a fresh perspective on God's Word and how He meets us in the situations we are in, through the everyday objects and scenarios of life.
