Margo-Lynne has had an interest in embroidery since her teenage years.
It was not until 2009 that she began to take Embroidery seriously after a holiday in England which incorporated short courses on Silk Shading and Goldwork Embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court.
Margo-Lynne became a member of the untethered fibre artists inc. and has been exhibiting with this group for five years. The group’s unSeen exhibition was rated as one of the Australian Art Guide’s Top 5 Exhibitions in Australia on 31 May 2019. Margo-Lynne’s textile piece Segmented Cities was featured in the Instagram post as well as the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery’s Autumn/Winter Guide.
Margo-Lynne recently worked as a volunteer at the Akira Isogawa Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney for several months. She was demonstrating her embroidery skills to the public in the Makers Space.
Margo-Lynne enjoys sharing her passion with others who want to learn the ‘Art of Embroidery’. She uses a colourful palate of threads using traditional stitches on different fabric surfaces. For the past two years, Margo-Lynne has been concentrating on colour and the contemporary use of traditional stitches.
‘The experience of using a few basic stitches in different ways is the success of achieving a beautiful piece of contemporary embroidery.’
