Theresa Hempsall has a passion for the technique of tufting, which she executes on a single needle machine, using a combination of yarns. Tufting allows her to translate painting and drawing qualities into physical texture. She combines the tuft with appliqué and stitch – a juxtaposition of different applications. The calmness of the hand stitch, the precision of the sewing machine stitch and the physical, noisy, almost industrial notion of the tufted stitch. This amalgamation of techniques give her pieces an explosion of textural indulgence which lifts the spirits and makes you smile.
