Contemporary textile artist Nell has a love of machine and hand embroidery. Nell essentially draws, paints and sculpts forms with only layers of thousands of stitches, no fabric, using the needle as a pencil, and the fabric as her canvas. Nell has challenged herself to explore the use of basic straight and zig zag stitch to create cloth with stitch only…with some help from a water soluble fabric. Using this technique and exploring different stitch tensions, Nell can create 3 dimensional artwork using only thread.
