MEMBER: Cognissart - Alison Wake, Textile Artist
Living in the Peak District National Park, I am inspired by the landscapes surrounding me. My textile artworks are hand stitched, often using locally sourced, hand dyed wool. Using a free had technique I “paint with thread and yarn”. Whilst walking the paths and trails of the Peak District I see, hear, smell and feel the natural and manmade features which make this area so unique. I try to communicate my experience through the colour, texture and imagery of my pictures.
