July Talk - Kerry Mosley
Kerry Mosley is a textile artist who has only recently started to give talks on the work she does and the route that took her there. A lifelong love of drawing and the opportunity to return to part-time study when her children were small, led her into the world of textile art. She uses scientific wire and beads to knit a background upon which she then machine stitches using dissolvable fabric to add more detail to the organic forms and portraits she creates. She has come a long way since her first initial drawings of fruit such as lemons and pomegranates and currently has an exhibition at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne.
