"I distorted different coloured voiles with a heat gun to get texture and variations in tone. I then bonded them together with Bondaweb. Next I used free machine embroidery, hand stitching and some beads. I was trying to show the rich colours and textures seen in the Hubble images of the Carina Nebula."
"The deep space images of nebula, stellar nurseries and star remnants are always inspiring and visually exciting. The Hubble telescope has certainly spiked our curiosity and awe. I love gawping at the Hubble gallery of stunning images, trying to devise ways of working them in fabric and stitch."
