Jilly Edwards

The ATA (American Tapestry Alliance)  released their biennial publication, CODA recently. This one is available to everyone, not just members, and featured one of my favorite tapestry artists, Jilly Edwards. I first saw her work in issue #246 (Jan/Feb 2014) of Crafts magazine (article here), including some of this series:

Ms. Edwards wrote a fascinating piece about preparing a show for gallery display and how she creates:

My “work has an element of the landscape, whether I am walking to the corner shop, or on the beach, or travelling through unfamiliar countryside, by train. However, it’s not about the landscape, it’s about my feelings, thoughts, memories that the sights, words, and sounds evoke in me.”*

Well worth a read, and a visit to her website for a closer look at her work!
