Laura Marriott

Festival: 2019

My intricate, bold embroideries are inspired by a deep cultural fascination with tribal art and traditional objects accumulated on personal travels around the world. By stretching and layering stitches, I create unusual and exciting textures, pushing the boundaries of the digital embroidery software and machine.

I design shapes individually, then carefully construct these pieces together to form playful motifs. These formations come to life, as they are manipulated by hand to build quirky character compositions that are full of charisma; to build a range of textile products from embroidered statement jewellery, to framed art.
