Julia Brown Landscapes

Leave a comment

At our July meeting Julia Brown gave a talk about her route into machine embroidery. She grew up in a sewing family with mother and grandmother supporting her as she developed her skills. As a result of this she developed a wedding dress business alongside her degree in Geography.  Art was always important to her.  She has a strong sense of place especially of the south coast and surrounds, where she lives. She starts with neutral textiles and her art training has helped with her colouring of these. All of these elements together with encouragement in free machine embroidery have led to her landscapes of today.
