My Defender. Original textile collage art piece
"My Defender" is an original embroidered piece of textile art, inspired by the lyrics in the song 'Defender' by Rita Springer
This original piece of textile collage art is inspired by the promise that God will never leave me or forsake me , no matter what. Even when I may lose myself or walk away from what I know, turning my back on God, He is always with me and knows my heart. That despite the storm around me, He knows just where I am.
This detailed textile collage is made from layers of vintage and modern fabrics, together with vintage lace, old postcards and book pages. Patches of wildflowers and roses have been hand embroidered across the piece which has been finished off with delicate beads and vintage buttons. An applique daisy takes centre stage above the words "when I thought I lost me, you knew where I left me."
The collage is mounted onto 3mm backing board and comes mounted, ready to frame.
Size 30 x30 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!
