YE ARE THE STARS OF EARTH, - AND DEAR TO ME

FOR YE TO ME ARE MORE THAN SWEET OR FAIR,
I LOVE YE FOR THE MEM'RIES TAHT YE BEAR
OF BY-GONE HOURS WHOSE BLISS WAS BUT A DREAM.
LOUISA ANNE MEREDITH TWAMLEY
Like many Victorian women, she received little credit or recognition for her achievements, though she never relinquished her positive attitude or the rmonatic fantsies that fueled her work. Louisa Anne Twamley remains one of the most original - and certainly one of the more adventurous - Victorian women of flowers.

"The abstract embroidery has a life of its own. There are many layers involved, and I never know exactly what the end result will be. A truly unique creation through from the beginning of the design process, through to adding colour and removing colour, letting it merge into the material/fabric and even adding selected thread neon creates glazes with light and shade. Strokes and texture build up in and on the piece over the few hours it takes to complete each piece. This artistic process can be done exactly the same on two different cushion throws, and both will come out differently. They do have a life of their own. I work with artistic styles and the medium of machine embroidery. This process is definitely the most sensuous for me. The inspiration can come from many different places, photographs, paintings, objects and for instance, going to see a film. Part of the design packages I use have their own say in when a piece is finished. The stitching seems to be maxed out when the last thread layer is added! The piece darkens or lightens with the view point you have on it, as to what time of day and with varying light. It appears to move with the light and Shade. The stitches change from being sewn one way to another giving a unique contrasting life to the piece."
