Work from my portfolio preparation course in 2014/2015 in Abbeyleix Fetac level five art portfolio preparation course.
This piece was based on my photography of Abbeyleix bog .
I wanted to portray the beauty in each season and how the landscape of the bog land changes over time.
I like my work to show the roughness of the landscape and to have movement and character. I cherish the imperfections and randomness of the stitch. Free machine embroidery and embellishment provides the freedom to move but also gives randomness and life to each stitch.
this piece took me approximately two weeks and was created using scrim , found/ recycled fabric and materials and free machine stitch.
