Elizabeth Saunders Textile Art B.A. (Hons) .MA Textile Design M.A. (Ed)

Elizabeth is a Textile Artist and Designer, inspired by narratives, memories, and journeys through life often using her own memories. The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within her work aiming to make the invisible-visible.

She uses a variety of mixed media, predominantly thread to meander through the fragile pathways of life.

Printing, painting, hand stitch and free machine embroidery are a few of the techniques used within her work.

She has exhibited her work in London, Birmingham, Harrogate and locally within Winchester Cathedral. She continues to be influenced by historic and contemporary art and finds motivating the wider community about textiles exciting and rewarding. Elizabeth recently developed the concept of ‘Gathered Memories’ exploring and creating this project with students from the local Peter Symonds College and four invited artists, developing links with the Theatre Royal in Winchester

Elizabeth is a Licentiate member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and an Embroiderer’s Guild selected Graduate. She belongs to two textile groups and a local art group. Her broad experience of 32 years as a Nurse before taking early retirement is reflected in her work.

She is available for talks, commissions and workshops.
