|Piece I purchased by artist Gwen Lowery|
Gwen's work is incredible dense machine stitching. She was in one of the first diploma classes given by Gail here in the United States, and holds a City & Guilds Diploma in Design and Embroidery from the Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts. Her pieces she has been working on currently are quite large. One of the pieces she shared with us was approximately 12 x 15 feet ( 4 x 5 meters). Gwen's work is being shown internationally. Unfortunately, since the pieces she shared with us are committed to shows, so I can't share photos of them. However, you can see some of her work on Gwen's website and also on a page as an award winner from the Artist Trust Edge program for 2011. Gwen was also a guest writer on Gail Harker's blog with her post "Going Big". I look forward to keeping an eye on her progress as an artist and as an inspiration to my work, personally!
