Vinny Stapley - textile - print - mixed media
- With a background as Textile Designer and teacher her current work as an Artist has led to Community Arts Projects, Public and Private commission’s.
- Work focuses on the natural ephemera of the landscape, the unique nuances of the fringes and plant-life of the Blackwater. More recent work has been exploring the marshes and tidelines through abstracted stitched form. The repetitive nature of stitch echoes the constant ebb and flow of the sea.
- Processes combine screen-print and digital print with other techniques experimentally to produce mixed-media pieces in a variety of formats, from sculptural to printed panels, canvas and sailcloth and glass.
- She is now based in her studio ‘Old School’ in East Mersea, where she also runs workshops in textile techniques and screen printing.
