'Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.' Proverbs 16:24
Hello! I'm Grace, a textile artist and mum of two curly haired wild things living in Cheltenham.
Since graduating from Falmouth University in 2010 with a degree in Textile Design, I've been making, creating, sewing and making. I love to encourage, to dream and to spread joy, and my textile art pieces reflect this as well as sharing the good news of the hope we have in Jesus.
Beautiful words from scripture and lovely old hymns are my inspiration, and the vision behind my work comes from the Isaiah 43:19; 'See, I am doing a new thing!' Old linens and lace once fit for purpose and now discarded, are snipped, stitched and shaped into new things. They become the patchworked surfaces for textile collages, which I then embellish with print, applique and hand embroidered verses and lovely words. These pieces are scanned and made into high quality scripture art prints and encouragement cards, all printed in the UK.
