Alison Couchman Textile artist
Alison has a keen interest in surface embellishment, particularly the effect of texture and how light plays across uneven painted, printed and metallic surfaces.
Much of her work is wall-hung pieces of machine embroidery as well as Art quilts.
She likes to experiment with machine embroidery over photos printed onto fabric, fused applique and is also interested in image transfer.
Alison is very drawn to working in 3D and has made a series of vessel forms including some that stand about 1 metre high. She continues to investigate 3D forms and is looking at more organic, free-form shapes that can become sculptural in nature.
Alison also works as a tutor for groups and offers a wide range of courses.
Alison belongs to TAGS, Chain Reaction and the Diss Embroidery Group.
