Elizabeth Saunders


Elizabeth Saunders

Elizabeth Saunders is an experienced artist working with a variety of textiles and mixed media. Elizabeth has exhibited work within galleries and continues to be influenced by historic and contemporary art within these settings. She finds motivating other individuals about textiles exciting and rewarding.

The artist's work is inspired by a narrative of her own memories and journeys through life. As the needle with the thread penetrates the cloth it begins a journey of twisting and turning, meandering along its path, inserting and embedding threads into the fabric,  exploring life’s turmoil, perseverance and pleasure .‘…self and world…thought and feeling…’
