Take courage my heart. Original textile collage art piece.
"Take courage my heart, stay steadfast my soul" - an original textile art piece based on the song 'It is well'
Another in the set of smaller pieces I made as a series. This piece was created as a reminder that we can experience peace in our spirit even when our minds and hearts are troubled and sore.
The collage is based around an appliqued white daisy mounted onto fabric with the words "It is well". The collage is finished with lace and a vintage button embellishment and is then mounted onto felt to add depth. The square collage is then fixed onto a frayed piece of neutral linen and scraps of vintage lace and fabric. A tiny embroidered flower adds the final touch. The text " take courage my heart, stay steadfast my soul" is handwritten across the bottom of the piece.
The textile collage is mounted onto board and comes framed in a 16 x 16 cm white box 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!
