I was born into freedom I was made to fly. Original textile collage art
"I was born into freedom, I was made to fly " Original textile collage art piece based on the lyrics of 'Catch the wind' .
One in a series of smaller textile collages that I made. The piece is made to remind us that we are made to be filled with joy, that there is nothing holding us back, that with Jesus, nothing is impossible!
The collage is centred around a daisy, appliqued onto a square of fabric and backed with felt, giving it extra dimension. The collage is completed with a vintage button, simple embroidery and the word " joy". The square piece is mounted onto neutral, frayed linen and finished with a piece of vintage lace. The words "I was born into freedom, I was made to fly", are handwritten across the bottom of the collage.
The textile collage is mounted onto board and comes framed in a 16 x 16 cm white box frame.
Sent in protective box.
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!
