I love multi-textured and architectural art.  By layering pieces, colors, and different degrees of sheer fabric on top of each other creates new ways of seeing the fabric.  Lindsay Taylor is another individual who understands the principles of layering and has put it to practice in her sculptures and jewelry.

Lindsay resides on the Isle of Wright in England.  Her works have been featured in many publications including Selvedge, Design Edge, and Country Living.  All of her works begin with hand dyed fabric, mainly silk or merino wool.  Then multiple techniques are applied usually over one another to create what Lindsay describes as “magic”.  Many of the techniques used are devoré, felting, appliqué, heat manipulation, freehand or machine embroidery, batik, wire and bead work.  The final product is nothing short of highly innovative, textured, and extremely beautiful.

Every little detail that you can imagine are present in her work.  The lines of the butterflies are carefully stitched into the wings, giving each individual butterfly character of its own.
