Margaret Hage – Textile Arts, Fine Arts & Mixed Media
Digital manipulation and print application to art textiles is a technique I have been developing within my work for a few years. This adds complexity which I find exciting and allows a deeper emotive response to my environment. I enjoy this contrast of the spontaneity and slightly unexpected aspect of my print work to the intentional deliberate intervention which digital application allows and when I combine both applications into one work the results are exciting.
Art is my passion in all its forms, it is the essence of my soul and the reason I want to work at creating art every day and I will move with ease from stitching to painting or printing and this allows me to see no boundaries in mixing techniques or materials. I paint using acrylic and oil, draw in pastel, collage in fabric and paper, and stitch art textiles using free motion and hand embroidery. Always I am driven by my instinctual and inherent need to create and tell stories in a visual sense.
