This piece includes seedpods, textiles, scrim, skeletal leaves, beads and metal.
This is a detail from a large piece of embellished fibres and embroidery which won Gill a Madeira Embroidery prize. I could not decide what had been used to give a waxen looking finish to this piece (wax maybe?) but the surface was thickly encrusted and many materials had been included. The image above is a detail of what was about a 24" x 16" canvas.
This is a detail from a large painting which I liked for its colour.
Gill very kindly gave me permission to show her work here so please respect her copyright - as will I. I'm hoping that Gill will soon run some classes so that I can learn some of her techniques first hand. Regrettably she does not have a website at present. I find it is often easier to pick something up when someone shows you and you then try it for yourself.
