'In quiet strength'. An original hand embroidered textile art piece. This piece was made to represent the understated strength that many of us carry within. With its subtle colours and quiet elegance the piece serves as a reminder that those who are strongest are not always those who shout the loudest or garner the most attention, but that strength comes from within and has many forms.
This collage is made from a vintage piece of linen taken from an old napkin, which has been mounted onto a piece of old sheeting. Subtle, muted colours of an old quilt and tiny pieces of fabric together with a scrap of lace form the background of the piece, onto which a white daisy has been appliqued. The collage is accentuated with hand embroidery that has tiny seed beads nestled within. A scrap from a discarded letter and a vintage button finish the embellishments.
The piece comes mounted onto 5mm foam board and comes presented in an off white mount, ready to frame.
Measuring 23 x 23 cm with an aperture of 12 x 12 cm.
Comes wrapped in cellophane and shipped in protective packaging.

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!
