Cindy Watkins – Embroidery Art works
The Textile Artist AKA Cindy Watkins works from her new studio space in the picturesque town of Latrobe Tasmania. Cindy finds inspiration from the wild and beautiful Tasmanian landscape.
She is currently working on a project to stitch 5000 trees.
The natural world is my inspiration and features heavily in my work. I especially love animals. I also find inspiration in the fabric itself. There is a world of textile art and art techniques out there and I feel that I am on a life long journey of learning. I enjoy experimenting and trying new things and I feel this is part of the process of developing your own style. I use photographs taken by myself or friends as reference material.
Cindy uses her sewing machine to create her artwork. She fee-style stitches each piece to create unique and beautiful pieces. Silk and cotton are her preferred materials which are often hand dyed by Cindy using leaves and bark found in the natural bush areas of Tasmania.
Cindy Watkins lives and works as a textile artist in her sun filled studio in Latrobe, Tasmania.
She has won many awards for her textile artwork both in Australia and over seas. Cindy’s work has been published in magazines in Australia, New Zealand and America. Her work hangs in private collections throughout Australia and Internationally. The natural world is her inspiration especially Tasmanian flora and fauna.
