Sue Dove, UK: ARTFUL FROCKS......wall pieces based on the Frock....

I did a textile degree in the 1970s at Liverpool college of art UK, and then moved to Penzance in Cornwall....since then l have taught mixed media textiles and worked as an artist.. I lived for approximately 10 years in Byron Bay, teaching and producing art there too!

Returning to Cornwall , l ran a Fine Art Textile course and produced a book ‘painting with stitches’. Currently l am a member of the St Ives Society of Artists and the Makers Emporium in St Just, Cornwall.. l continue to make art work from my studio in my garden..

Develop a unique and beautiful sketchbook  using simple achievable collage exercises, mono-prints, paper stencils etc... filling the sketchbooks with images, colour and texture... Using artists work...Matisse, Picasso, Chagall.. etc.. as our starting points, we will extract shapes, form and  colour from the images.....adding your own ideas and personal images/words... From these we will develop our Art Frocks...stitching by hand and machine, fabric, paper, mono-printed and stencilled....found fabrics.. embellished with precious bits and pieces....
