Anne Creasey

'Consider the Lilies'
Anne Creasey is a textile artist and embroiderer working in a variety of styles from traditional to abstract and experimental. She is very interested in helping people discover their spirituality through the creative process.
As an amateur painter, Anne rarely produced religious art but, six years ago, she gave up painting to concentrate on embroidery and textile art which were, for her, more natural media for expressing religious ideas and imagery. She has one criteria and that is to create something of beauty.

Her work includes traditional embroidery, appliqué with painted fabric and includes a large range of materials, from yarns and threads to plastic bags. If it can be sewn down, it can be used! Subject matter includes the figurative and the abstract. Anne prefers to produce wall hangings as she likes to work on a fairly large scale. Panels are usually, but not always, framed without glass so as not to lose the textural qualities of the piece.
