About the Artist
Angela Dewar is a textile artist, teacher and art historian. Her work includes major pieces in Salisbury Methodist Church,Truro Cathedral, Westminster Central Hall and the senior common room at Keynes College at the University of Kent.
Her work aims to reflect her love of travel, landscape, poetry and music. She makes commissioned embroidered and felted clothes.
Recent discovery of some antique tapestries in a poor state of repair has led her to explore the idea of bringing fragments to life with machine embroidery.
