Mixed MediaPainting

Although Val mainly draws and paints, her textile background is never far away. Her loom is back under her roof, after 25 years, at the moment only to look at. Always happy experimenting with new ideas – collage, printing and other mixed media, Val says she runs out of time. Recently Val has been enjoying finding bits of things around, including old textile samples from college days, stitching and sticking the bits together, “gadging”, as her grandmother would have called it.
