Textile Embroidery Artist Fay Maxwell

The Best British Textile Artists  – Fay Maxwell

Fay Maxwell is a firm favourite of ours at Colouricious. Her use of colour and stitch has always been an inspiration to us. Fay takes inspiration from Indian hand embroidery techniques using traditional stitches to embellish her work. Combining crewel work with Indian stitches such as kantha, shisha and edge stitches Fays work is highly decorative.

As you can see Fay’s work combines a variety of hand embroidery, adding beads and shisha mirrors. We love her cartwheel stitches!  Check our more of Fay’s fabulous embroidered works of art in the Colouricious online Gallery.
