shireen brickell LSDC


Shireen lives and works in Dorset, so she is much inspired and influenced by country life, the characters and wildlife are much in evidence in her work.  She has always been passionate about drawing which has always featured very strongly in everything she does.  Capturing a moment that is interesting, amusing or sad is a real passion and because of that her images in textiles are always informed by her drawing.

She uses her diaries, which are part sketch book, and which accompany her everywhere she travels. Recording scenes and events as she goes.  Many images drawn while in Rwanda.

Wildlife drawing is also a very important part of her life and has resulted in a series of embroideries the surrounding countryside as a source of inspiration.

Just recently embroidered boxes have been an interesting addition to her many types of artwork.
