My name is Marna and I am based in the North East of England, on the border of the North Yorkshire Moors where I grew up. My landscape work is heavily based on the landscape of those beautiful moors and the colours and textures found dancing in the heather.
My work is hand stitched and painted by me alone in my home studio. By handling and loving each element I work on, by using stunning hand dyed threads & vintage threads and using an eclectic combination of materials I feel a personality and soul emerges in each creation.
My roots are in fine art and I have been extensively trained in the field. I now spend most of my time sewing and dabbling with textiles to create my artwork. I concentrate on colour & texture, on the layering of fabrics, stitch & paint to complement elements of the pattern, it's all about the little details and creating a one off for someone to treasure forever.
