Exciting NEW Textile Artist joins the gallery...

Another NEW and EXCITING local, contemporary artist, Sue Johnston, joins the gallery this week.

Sue is a textile artist and painter, based in North Norfolk, who draws inspiration from the landscape, with nature conservation being a recurring theme.

With a love of textile processes, stitch in particular, she has developed her own unique technique. Working with a base of wire and paper, found items are combined with stitch, to depict plants and creatures and represent the fragility and balance of nature, which all interlink and depend on each other. Beautifully observed and delicately made bumble bees, dragonflies and other flora and fauna are captured in a most unusual way.

Sue studied at the Norwich School of Art, graduating with a BA (Hons) in Textile Art. After graduating, she was invited to be a licentiate member of The Society of Designer Craftsmen and took part in their exhibition at The Mall Galleries in London. Sue regularly participates in the annual Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios and was selected to show her work at the annual Cley Contemporary Art exhibition in 2016-17.
