Chloe Morter Design

I am a textile artist based in East Devon where I work from my home studio designing and stitching embroidery collages. My pieces are inspired by the natural world, especially birds, animals and insects and combine machine embroidery with collage and applique. Botanical illustration, folk art and art history are a strong influence. I use a wide combination of materials such as linens, silks, cottons and papers and have a great fondness for careworn vintage fabrics and faded prints. The central focus of each piece of work comes from close observation of the subject, a bird for instance, using many and varied sketches and photos to create a detailed and accurate digital machine embroidery design. This is then combined more loosely with built up layers of collage, sometimes the addition of ink and chalk, finishing with hand stitched details.
