Gloria Pugh
Textile Artist

I take my inspiration from the natural world. My work concentrates on hand weaving interpreting landscape or specific natural details into an abstract form.

I use mixed media techniques to provide the interest and detail in the work, and include both hand and machine embroidery to enhance the detail.

On a recent holiday in France I drew inspiration from the unique architecture and the rustic charm of the countryside. The houses with faded shutters from a powerful sun and flowers growing in informal gardens shaped my most recent work.
