Textiles with Elizabeth Saunders
About Elizabeth Saunders
Elizabeth is one of the artists exhibiting with Hampshire Open Studios from 21st-20th August. Elizabeth is an experienced artist that works with a variety of textiles and mixed media. Elizabeth has exhibited her work at galleries and continues to be influenced by historic and contemporary art within these settings. Using her experience of marketing and selling, she finds motivating other individuals about textiles exciting and rewarding.
Elizabeth'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…’
'The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within my work aiming to make the invisible memories-visible.'
