I studied Textiles at Goldsmiths college and progressed to receive a Masters in Textiles from Birmingham University. These days, I work from a lovely studio at the bottom of our garden; from here the expansive view across the Holme Valley is breathtaking and provides constant inspiration to my textile work.
I love to draw, print and stitch, building layers of depth into every artwork. I work in an abstract and intuitive way with no two pieces being exactly the same, this keeps the fabric surface fresh and exciting!
I apply my sense of colour and surface to a range of items including hand painted scarves as well as wall based contemporary embroideries and drawings.
**A new collection of Dionne's stitched wall pieces will be with us very soon...
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
