I want to know your heart. Original textile collage art piece.
“I want to know your heart”. Original hand embroidered textile art piece.
This textile art piece was inspired by the Steffany Gretzinger song “Closer” and is a call to intimacy with Jesus that comes from knowing the love that He has for us.
This layered collage is created with a palette of reds, greens and cream on an off white background. Layers of linen and vintage fabrics are hand sewn onto a piece of vintage linen together with a vintage papers and lace. A heart cut from Liberty fabric is hand sewn onto the background and is further embellished with stitching and a piece of vintage lace. The words “ I want to know your heart” have been hand stamped onto white fabric and sewn to the piece. To finish, clusters of red and pink roses and leaves have been hand embroidered and embellished with old pearl beads and clear seed beads.
The collage is mounted onto 3mm backing board and comes presented in a white mount, ready to frame.

Meet the Maker
Textile based art and accessories made to express the character and promises of God.
After a number of years working in the fields of Educational Psychology and Special Education, a number of events including a life changing illness, conspired to send me back to my first love: designing and creating.
I now have the wonderful privilege of spending my daytime surrounded by an ever growing fabric mountain and yarn stash in my little studio near to Maastricht. Here I can be found making one of a kind embroidered textile collage pieces which incorporate vintage fabric , lace and photographs together with book pages, modern fabrics and embroidery. All of my pieces stem from my relationship with God and are inspired by one of His characteristics, a promise to stand on or sometimes a line from a worship song. Sometimes the pieces are inspired by the words and sometimes the words are inspired by the piece!
My heart is that my art pieces are the starting place for people to encounter God on a deeper level, to be reminded daily of His promises or a starting point for conversations about faith. There is such a huge amount of myself in each of my pieces that I am always so very thrilled when others want to display my art in their homes!
