Tina Barnes

My art is a journey of discovery and expression. My medium of choice is fibre.

Although I focus on machine and hand embroidery, I draw on several techniques to express my ideas. These include beading, metalwork, felting, painting and printmaking.

My work is varied and constantly evolving but has a recurring theme. I’m deeply influenced by the daily rituals we have, the paths we choose and the journey that is our life. Some of my work is light hearted and humorous to remind us to laugh and not be too serious other pieces are more thought provoking, honouring our passionate side.

I view each day with new eyes, seeing beauty in the ordinary. Forever looking to express through my art the wonderment of the simple things we so often overlook.
