Product description

'The Desert Will Rejoice' is a mounted, signed giclee print from an original textile embroidery. 

The original textile collage was inspired by the words from Isaiah 35:1. Beautiful old linens, lace and doilies were used to build up a tactile layered surface before being freehand machine embroidered with the words from the bible verse. The piece was then overlayed with appliqued lace and embellished with hand stitched flowers and grasses based on my own wildflower drawings.

Many hours of work went into creating the original hand stitched piece and this professional archival print has picked out the textures of the lace and details of the hand embroidery beautifully.

It is printed on textured fine art paper using archival inks which will make your artwork last a lifetime. The paper measures 10x10'' and the image measures approximately 7.5x7.5''. Frame not included.

Hello! I'm Grace, a textile artist and mum of two curly haired wild things living in Cheltenham.  

Since graduating from Falmouth University in 2010 with a degree in Textile Design, I've been making, creating, sewing and making. I love to encourage, to dream and to spread joy, and my textile art pieces reflect this as well as sharing the good news of the hope we have in Jesus.

Beautiful words from scripture and lovely old hymns are my inspiration, and the vision behind my work comes from the Isaiah 43:19; 'See, I am doing a new thing!' Old linens and lace once fit for purpose and now discarded, are snipped, stitched and shaped into new things. They become the patchworked surfaces for textile collages, which I then embellish with print, applique and hand embroidered verses and lovely words. These pieces are scanned and made into high quality scripture art prints and encouragement cards, all printed in the UK.
