It was on a starry night. Original Christmas textile collage art piece
It was on a starry night. Original Christmas themed embroidered mixed media collage art piece.
This Christmas themed piece of textile art was inspired by the lyrics of the children’s Christmas carol. As I was making this piece I was reminded of all the times I cried at my children’s Christmas concerts when they sang this carol. It always made me think of that tiny baby born as hope to a world which needed Him, but the lines that always struck hardest are “ And their Hearts believed again, for the peace of men” . These lines always bring to mind my friends and family who don’t yet know Jesus, and the longing in my heart for them to know His Peace. So above all this art piece represents the hope and the peace that was brought to us by that tiny baby boy born on that starry night...
This mixed media textile collage is made from layers of fabric which have been hand embroidered and embellished with beads and sequins.
The collage is backed on 3mm backing board , and placed in a 23 x23 cm white mount, ready to frame.
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!
