This site just dropped into my inbox - some stunning work by Karen Casper, who is also presently undertaking a Master of Textiles course at Manchester Met Uni.
Karen produces innovative beautiful tactile pieces of work who
does not particularly lean towards one technique, but enjoys and thrives
on working with mixed media. Techniques include devore, quilting,
embroidery, print, fabric manipulation and embellishment to produce
fine art pieces and commercial items, ensuring to retain the
uniqueness. Using traditional textile techniques and vintage
aesthetics Karen injects contemporary technology producing innovative
futuristic pieces that ultimately creates an art and fashion crossover.
