JUNE FIFORD

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

June has always had an interest in pattern in nature and in ancient artefacts and her hand stitched artworks reflect that interest.
Following another interest in old embroideries June uses fragments to create new works giving new meaning to these fading textiles.
June’s designs often have several layers of meaning, some obvious to the viewer and others that are revealed after considered thought.
