Suzy Ager
Textile design, embroidery specialist, I am inspired by the forms and textures of the natural world. I take an illustrative approach using free hand machine stitching with hand embroidered elements. The works of Karen Nicol and Jacky Puzey are hugely influential to me. Arcane Spectres aims to showcase designs suitable for a high-end fashion collection. Inspired by the imaginative, fantastical work of Alexander McQueen and Tim Walker, I love the storytelling, beauty and dark edges of their work that engender an emotional response. Excited by materials and techniques I am fascinated by natural dyeing and have a genuine interest in improving the sustainability of my practice. During 2020 I achieved some competition recognition, namely; • Society of Dyers and Colourists “Colour & the Universe 2020”, regional finalist and commendation. • I-dott 2020, final shortlist nomination.
