Front Cover: Esther Collins - Spring SamplesWith a background in Graphic Design, Esther is a local Artist who began working with textiles over 10 years ago.
Inspired by the natural world, the plants and landscape of the South Downs, her artwork often has a botanical theme and likes to use natural processes whenever possible.
‘I love the often overlooked parts of nature - the details of weeds, brambles or trees and the energy and vitality of plants and flowers. Textile art and embroidery are my absolute passion and I am really looking forward to exhibiting with Steyning Arts Trail this year.’
As well as making art, Esther also runs classes and workshops in textiles and embroidery.
