Karen Nicol

I studied Art Foundation and then BA (Hons) Multidisciplinary Design. I was a photographer who loved the texture and warmth of fabric and the stitched line, and now I combine these passions to create unique and original framed freehand machine embroidered and appliquéd pieces.

In my studio on the edge of Dartmoor, and inspired by our elegant Whippets, I learnt to draw with my sewing machine. My subjects are usually animals and I endeavour to capture their character or grace and movement.

A large part of my work is commissioned, both at home and internationally, which provides me with a huge and very enjoyable diversity. Often inspired by a piece of vintage fabric or a photograph, my imagination leads me to sew the quirky, beautiful, magical and sometimes humorous or touching.
