Carol Wilkes - Textile Artist
Carol Wilkes is an experienced, multi skilled Textile Artist and Tutor. She refers to herself as a surface Embellishment Technician, an Experimentalist and Embroiderist.
Carol uses fabrics and threads as her medium. She designs and embroiders complex, multi-layered imaged into finished artworks, contemporary wall quilts and fashion statements. Her creative artistry, free motion embroidery and collage techniques have developed as a result of her passion for fabric and fashion. Combining both traditional and modern techniques she renders fabric surfaces with her own unique style.
The creative process and the journey of discovery as she plays and creates are certainly become an obsession and a passion.
Carol believes that gone are the days when “Art was for the viewing and Textiles for the Wearing”.
Carol has taught and exhibited extensively both Nationally and Internationally.
Carol has works housed in many parts of the globe in private collections.
