Yvonne Elliott - Painter
I have an MA in Russian theatre history and a PGCE in post-compulsory education. Until recently I was a manager with Community Learning MK with wide ranging responsibilities, including the arts provision. Over the past 10 years I have been actively developing my lifelong interest in fine art and textiles and have now started to exhibit my work through Open Studios and local galleries. I create imaginary landscapes using hand-dyed and printed papers and fabrics which I layer, stitch into and embellish. I also paint in acrylics and water-mixable oils and am developing a thematic series to complement my stitched works.
I thrive on experimentation and love the challenge of working with new media and on collaborative projects.
