Carol Cruickshank

Carol Cruickshank

Carol is an artist who works with textiles to produce cheerful, vibrant and colourful land- and seascapes. She chooses from a huge stash of recycled, new, hand dyed, shared and remnant fabrics and, using a free style method sews the collages together by hand.

“My work develops at a slow rate and I find it satisfies my creative desires being very restful and calming, especially when I can sit out in the sun and sew with my work on my lap”

Carol worked previously in Essex teaching a range of subjects from Science and Maths to Food and Textiles. Studying basic applique technique from Essex textile designer Sharon Blackman she went on to develop her own unique style after moving to Dorset 6 years ago. “I was inspired by my glorious surroundings to try to recreate the settings and feelings for my new home using an ancient technique I had learnt over previous years”. Many of her originals are framed by her husband, in driftwood washed in by the stormy seas off Portland

Carol found her work translated well as art prints and on cards, mugs, coasters, placemats and cushions which she sells alongside her originals in Dorset galleries, shops, and restaurants and also further afield in Devon

She is currently chairman of Artwey; a visual arts community based in Weymouth and Portland and has recently been accepted as a member of ABNA.
