Louise Nichols's Bio

Louise Nichols

Textile Artist – Quethiock, Cornwall

Louise has been working with textiles & design since gaining a

B.A.Hons.Degree in Fashion & Textiles – specialising in Surface Decoration

She loves pattern, looking at the positive & negative – the pattern within

the picture – & also loves working with colour, exploring how the ‘feel’ of

an image changes with the use of varying colours. 

Working from her studio in Cornwall she produces a range of images made

from lino cuts which have been inspired by her everyday surroundings.

The lino cuts are printed onto linen & she then uses fabric application &

hand stitching to add detail & texture. The prints are used to create various

items auch as glasses pouches, purses, brooches & hangings.
