Your Artist – Corinne Young
I am a textile artist from the UK. I create embroidered 3D artwork, bespoke furnishings and accessories.I have always loved to stitch, and have done so ever since I can remember. My father and several ancestors on both sides of my family worked in the textile industry, and my mother, aunt and grandmother were all keen needlewomen.I completed a degree in Textile Design in 2003. I also have qualifications and work experience in interior design and decoration and gallery curation.My work is inspired by two major things – the flowers and insects I study in my garden, and the artefacts to be found in historic houses. The floral aspect gives my work its colour, texture and form, and the methods I use, the style of the work and its 3D quality comes from the study of historic artefacts such as 17th century stump work caskets. I like to use vintage fabrics and papers to create my work, and also love to stitch into my handmade linen paper, which I make in large sheets in my studio.
