Judith Rowley

Judith has had a lifelong interest in art and design and draws inspiration for her textile art from a variety of sources. Her work is invariably informed by visual research. Ideas are often derived from the natural and built environment and her creative journey often leads into an abstract interpretation rather than a literal portrayal.
Her interest in history is often reflected in her practice.

TEXTILE PRACTICE
Judith works with natural hand dyed fabrics and fibres using a range of fabric manipulation techniques to create surfaces for stitch. Experimentation is a key component of her creativity. She often incorporates fragments of historical textile, script and mixed media to produce textural and tactile textile art.

‘Deliquescence’ was inspired by 90 year old shipwrecks discovered in a tributary of the River Aven in France. Judith worked with textile swatches previously submerged in the compost heap where nature coloured and distressed them. She then embellished her work with hand and machine
