Gwen Hedley

I am a textile artist, and not a ‘printmaker’ in the purest sense of the word. I use printing processes as a means of transferring marks onto fabrics and papers, which are then combined, using stitch. Further marks are made with needle and thread, to give emphasis, and to blend areas.

My work is abstract. It develops from a visual stimulus, and there is frequently an oblique reference to the social issues of our time.
