Mary Taylor (embroidered textiles)
Mary’s embroidered textiles are inspired by the natural environment – a cliff face, seascape or entire mountainside – even a patch of rust. "I carry my camera with me everywhere and I’m always on the look-out for inspiration in this most beautiful part of England."
As a patchwork quilter I draw my inspiration largely from shapes and patterns generated by mathematics. I am uncompromising about the standard of my workmanship. I only do hand-quilting, hence it takes a long time to produce a quilt of any size.
