Audacious – Cheryl Bridgart
Cheryl Bridgart is a multi-faceted artist who is best known for her unique free-hand embroidery technique which she describes as drawing with her sewing machine. Possessing a dexterous fluidity with the sewing needle as another artist would use a pencil; she creates tactile and expressive images containing a personal and universal narrative. Cheryl studied visual art and taught herself embroidery developing a unique and personal style which continues to evolve. Setting herself a challenge, no preparatory work is done on the canvas and the art work begins when the needle and thread touches the canvas.
