I finished the embroidery I started last month

As I named the previous embroidery ‘Red Thread’ I felt ‘Red Thread II’ was a little dull so I asked google to translate red thread into French and it gave me fil rouge which seemed appropriate.

I am making preparations for another embroidery, bigger than the last two but using the same red thread based on a recent drawing:

Here are some other drawings I made last month:


And finally, I am exhibiting ‘Red Thread’ and a couple of other hand embroideries in the spring exhibition at Artwave West in Dorset, starting March 4th until April 23rd




About Shelley Morrow

Since 2011 I have been predominantly a figurative artist with an interest in conveying expression, movement and gesture. I take the drawings I make and explore them through various processes, particularly embroidery, textiles and etchings. I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art in 1990 and currently taking my MA in Fine Art at Brighton University. I also work at Draw in Brighton, running and teaching Life Drawing sessions
