Jenny Rydell - My Garden
Jenny Rydell works mainly with natural fabrics, paint and appliqué, often embellished with buttons and beads. Her medium is machine embroidery and some might say that her 'style' is quirky or 'naive'. Her inspiration for this hanging comes from the lovely gardens, allotments and greenhouses around Didsbury. The flowers and vegetables are full of life and colour which are reflected in her hanging. She painted the images onto calico using fabric paints and dyes and added fine detail with free machine embroidery. She then mounted the panels on to recycled denim from a pair of jeans.
