Alison Whateley Design Bio

I am a self taught textile artist creating contemporary textile art inspired by the coast and countryside. With no formal training I took up free motion machine embroidery in 2012 and over time I have gravitated towards textile art, developing my own unique style by using organzas to give a watercolour feel to my work.

Working loosely from photographs, but often directly from my imagination, each piece of my work evolves as it is created. I prefer not to use a sketchbook, instead allowing my creativity to guide me as each piece develops. Colour and texture are big influences for me and where possible I prefers to source up cycled textiles for their variety and individuality. I love the idea that these materials can be given a new purpose, and can be appreciated in a totally different way for many more years to come.

As well as my original artwork my range also includes giclee fine art prints, greeting cards and textile art kits.
I also welcome commissions of all sizes, and will work with you to get the result you are looking for.
I get great pleasure from passing on my knowledge and skills to others, and run regular workshops at my studio just outside of Thorverton, as well as providing talks and day workshops to groups such as the WI and embroiderers Guild.

In 2022 when our Devon studio was opened, our online casino players along with Abigail North Ceramics and Alan Dax with Albert Duplock published an article on Saturday 10th. When we open the doors, every betsafe casino player can enter for free and skip the line to chat with jewelry designer Alison Bendall and artist McSparron-Edwards where you can ask what inspires them and the whole process. Also, some works are for sale, such as Annie Drew’s wildlife art where an online casino player can ask for a discount.
