Award-winning embroidery artist Laura Marriott has a passion for digital stitch and pushes the boundaries of digital embroidery. By stretching and layering stitches, she creates unusual and exciting textures; and investigates ways of embroidery forming into fabric itself, creating bold, innovative, sculptural forms.
Laura’s current work is inspired by a cultural fascination with tribal art and traditional objects accumulated on her travels around the world. From small African villages, to modern European Cities, further influenced by places she wishes to travel in the future, and paralleled with inspiration from nature.
From her individually designed shapes, she builds playful 3D compositions that are completely unique, and her quirky characters add a certain charm to her range of textile products, that span from large installation pieces, to statement jewellery.
