The Artist and her Work
Hayley's work is strongly influenced by her background in Textile Design as well as her fascination with nature, particularly flowers. Her work shows a natural feel for pattern, texture and colour, using traditional painting techniques combined with embroidery and beading.
Hayley describes part of the creative process:
"I start off by painting in acrylic on the canvas, and then once it's dry I add the most exciting bit... beads, fabric, embroidery and whatever else takes my fancy. The pictures often evolve into something totally different to what I first had in mind, thanks to different finds along the way."
