We are delighted to feature another piece of artwork by Karen Lane, a Feltmaker and Textile Artist based in the market town of Horncastle. This is one of her most recent pieces and was made in response to a group challenge, with the theme and title “Abstraction”.

In her own words Karen says –

“It is purely non-representational. My aim was to create an ethereal look with paint, stitch and lots of texture. The background is acrylic paint on 100gsm Lutradur. The foreground is layers of Merino fibre, laminated on to a sheer fabric and free motion machine stitched.”

This beautiful piece certainly demonstrates Lutadur’s versatility when used to create a three-dimensional piece – the perfect medium to cut, colour and stitch!
