Award-winning textile artist Julie Bull creates hand stitched illustrations with recycled cotton fabric.
Working from her home studio in Heptonstall, Julie is inspired by nature, folklore, myths and legend
She is available for commissions and teaches. As an embroidery designer Julie has had projects published in several needlecraft magazines and also sells patterns online.
Julie said: “I see each piece I create as a precious little gem with its jewel like colours achieved by hand dying cotton fabrics and thread. Measuring just 8 inches square or less each illustration is a labour of love interjected with emotion.
“My hands on approach of connecting with the fabric through hand stitching follows the Kantha tradition of “feeling” the materials while creating a talisman of love to protect and comfort my loved ones
