Anne Leyland


After gaining my City & Guilds level 3 Diploma- Stitched Textiles - Embroidery, I joined Natural Progression Textile Group.

I have attended workshops and exhibited in their local exhibitions.

Much of my inspiration comes from the beautiful countryside north of Preston, Lancashire where I live.

I enjoy machine and hand embroidery, especially exploring a variety of techniques and hand stitches, to give different textures and varied colours in my work.

"Renewal" has given me the opportunity to examine "New Life Amongst the Ancient Rollright Stones of Oxfordshire"

ALL life depends on cells which grow, divide and multiply. This fascination has inspired me to investigate the topic further in "The Cycle of Life."
