About my work

I found this project an exciting opportunity to talk to other artists who use embroidery as a form of painting. I regularly use red tones in my work as it’s a very emotive language that symbolises blood. For this project, I used red thread for another reason: it is a traditional Welsh colour; the colour of the dragon on our flag. I also used yellow because this is the colour of our national flower, the daffodil, which blooms in its thousands in spring. I bought the cotton material in the Brecon Beacons of mid-Wales. 

I sewed the Article in my home language, Welsh, because although I no longer live in Wales I still feel a huge connection to my homeland and the people who live there. Welsh is a beautiful old Celtic language that is slowly being used less and less in Wales. It’s important to keep the language known and used.
