Anna Woodhead is a textile artist working with fabric, paper and mixed media. Taking blank cloth as my starting point, I build a palette of colour and texture by dyeing, painting and printing. This cloth becomes my art quilts, through a process of collage, piecing, and stitching. My inspiration comes from the world around me, I observe, take photographs and use these photos to inform design. Landscapes, seascapes, nature and decay form the basis of my work, which is abstract and contemporary.
