Suzette Smart Textile Artist and Tutor

Stitched books and stories.

“Whatever the piece of stitch, there is always a tale to tell!”

About Me

I’m a Textile Artist and Tutor living in a rural hamlet in North Shropshire. The natural world outside my door as well as the familiar journeys along the towpath close by, are my greatest source of inspiration for stitching and storytelling.

I’m not a light stitcher and I never manage to tell all in the first layer but prefer to build a story through collage, thread and a little mixed media. My work often includes hidden histories in the inherited or found fabrics and repurposed embroideries (own and other) I choose to use for collage and sometimes as my foundation layer. I mainly use free machine embroidery but the finishing stitches are often by hand.
