Helen Hughes

Artist's Statement

Creating is serious fun for me as I design richly coloured, densely stitched fibre artworks. Working from my home studio in Guelph, I construct with a pallette of jewel-like tones using silk or hand-dyed cottons, enhanced with decorative threads when stitching by hand or machine.

My inspiration and motivation come from many sources - the environment, political issues, other women’s lives and every day objects of beauty and rapture. Passion drives me forward as I celebrate a life in textiles.
