Alison Corfield

I am a mixed-media textile artist with a studio in the centre of Kirkcudbright. I make framed abstract artworks based on surfaces worn by the sea. I like cracked, distressed, and weathered patinas: the beauty of imperfection.

About My Practice

I love to explore the landscape of Dumfries and Galloway with my sketchbook, especially the coastal edges. In my studio I make collages with fabrics and papers, adding colour with paints and dyes. I finish my work by making expressive textural marks with my sewing machine.

Tools & Materials

I like to use recycled fabrics and papers in my pieces and I keep and use every tiny scrap. I collect vintage cotton threads to stitch with. My main tool is my Bernina sewing machine which I use for free-machine work.
