As a textile and print artist Monmouthshire based Penny Turbull's primary interest is in collage and the layering of texture and colour to create her image. Her work involves the use of an embellisher allowing her to combine fabrics and colour in a painterly way, giving more scope to mix and fragment colour producing an interesting background to further develop with stitch.
Free machine embroidery using a black thread gives a sketch like quality which is further worked with hand stitching to add detail and movement.
Penny works from her studio in Monmouthshire.
