Sylvia has been a professional painter and textile artist for more than forty years and is delighted to be showing her textile art in Maldon where she attended the Plume school in the 1970’s.
The works include a wall hanging of a phoenix, over 2 meters high, which was created in 2021 during lockdown. The unique artworks, both large and small, are created with remnants from the Sudbury silk factories as well as kimono silk and are either hand or machine stitched.
Sylvia is member of Art Textiles: Made in Britain a small group of textile artists who exhibit together throughout the UK. She has had textile pieces accepted for exhibition at the Tokamachi Quilt Festival Japan, Austria in 2019 and recently at The Bankside Gallery, London. Copies of her book ‘Bits and Pieces’ will be available at the exhibition.
