Sue Stone

Artist/Maker based in Grimsby. Talks, workshops, exhibited nationally and internationally. Honorary exhibiting member 62 Group of Textile Artists , Fellow of the Society of Designer/Craftsmen.

Sue Stone is an honorary exhibiting member of the 62 Group of Textile Artists (Chair 2013 to 2018) and Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. She studied Fashion at St Martins School of Art and Embroidery at Goldsmiths College.

Sue makes work about what she has experienced and how it has affected her, her relationships, her life observations and her environment. Her recent work is mainly figurative, it’s personal, but not sentimental, and sometimes tackles serious issues. She uses images from the family album as a device to tell her tales. These images from the past connect with those from the present to create a partial narrative. Built in layers, the mixed media compositions connect people, place and time and contrast the slow building of an image in hand stitch with the spontaneity of free machine stitch and paint.

 Her fervent use of hand and machine stitch as a means of mark making and all its facets : line, colour, texture, tone is underpinned by a great belief in drawing - as a thought process, as a means of solving problems, and as a means of expression in its own right.
