Gillian Bates is a UK-based textile artist who specializes in contemporary embroidered textiles. Her work is dones as if she’s drawing with needle and thread instead of a pen, as she makes her mark by using a freehand machine, embroidering on white cotton drill fabric. What about those blocks of colours on the canvas, you ask? Well, they’re a mix of reclaimed, recycled & new fabrics sewed into place.
