I create original textile art inspired by my environment, colours and forms of the Staffordshire countryside.
Colour, texture and pattern are central to my design process.
Every piece of work is unique due to the variations in the materials and techniques that I use. The colour palette I use is muted and sophisticated, I hand-dye many of my fabrics to achieve the perfect colour. I work intuitively using many explorative techniques and audition fabrics in a layering process to build up a design.
I love the beauty of natural fibres, cottons, linens, flax and wool, I am buying less new fabric and trying to recycle and repurpose whenever possible.
I run online textile workshop - see www.johilltextiles.co.uk
