Maura Summers

Artist Statement
Maura has a Fine Art background but has no formal qualification in Textile Art. Primarily a Painter/Printmaker she has in the last few years concentrated on transferring these skills to cloth, learning a great deal from the generosity of artists who are willing to share their skills and also her own research. She has a mixed media approach which includes screenprinting, batik and painting directly onto cloth and free machine stitching. As a result her work is an eclectic mix of methods and styles.
