Sue Stone

Artist, Maker, Writer

Sue Stone is current chair and exhibiting member of the 62 group of Textile Artists and member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. She studied Fashion at St Martins School of Art and Embroidery at Goldsmiths College.

Her recent series of work alludes to the passing of time by merging images from the past with those from the present. Built in layers, the mixed media compositions contrast the slow building of an image in hand stitch with the spontaneity of free machine stitch and paint.

Disparate images of the real are combined with the imagined, the remembered, and sometimes the nonsensical to create a partial narrative with a slightly surreal sense of humour which the viewer is invited to complete.

 Her fervent use of hand and machine stitch as a means of mark making and all its facets : line, colour, texture, tone is underpinned by a great belief in drawing - as a thought process, as a means of solving problems, and as a means of expression in its own right.
