The Art of Annemieke Mein : Wildlife Artist in Textiles
"Annemieke's exquisite textile art makes my heart sing! She is a master at bringing to life her wildlife subjects with needle and thread. What a glorious collection! A must-have for every textile enthusiast."
- Mary Corbet, Needle 'n Thread
The textile works of Annemieke Mein display a rare standard of artistry. She has explored beyond the bounds of craft and developed new techniques in her use of textiles and fabric paints. The illustrations in this book show how textiles can be used as an exciting sculptural medium. The artist's three-dimensional creations are works of extraordinary skill, born out of a passionate commitment to the environment that she observes with a loving eye.
Annemieke uses an amazing variety of materials - silk, wool, fur, cotton, synthetics - carefully chosen for their colour, texture, credibility and aesthetic appeal. These fabrics are then meticulously painted and stitched to faithfully reproduce her chosen subjects and to enhance the tactile quality unique to textiles. Numerous techniques are used in limitless combinations: hand and machine embroidery, dyeing, applique, trapunto, quilting, pleating, felting, beading, weaving and plying.
The work of Annemieke Mein will leave the reader breathless with wonder. It encourages an awareness of our natural heritage and of the need to preserve it.
