Summer Holiday (detail), Anne Kelly

Anne Kelly

Artist Statement

Anne collects recycled fabric, paper and ephemera using collage, stitch, photographic and print processes to create mixed media textiles, framed and free hanging. Her inspirations are taken from travel and memory and naïve, outsider and folk art. Her heavily embroidered and textural works have been described as ‘small worlds’, with a small scrap or remnant of fabric that can inspire a whole piece. Her first co-written book ‘Connected Cloth’ reflects her project work in the UK and abroad.
