The Summer of the Kingfishers - textile art by Nicky Perryman textile artist

The Summer of the Kingfishers

Since I was a small child I’ve always loved kingfishers. This piece ‘The Summer of the Kingfishers’ is inspired by the place down by the river where we used to go to play in the summer and have picnics. And it is where my father used to go as a child, where he learned to […]

Peacock on a Hilltop embroidery textile art by Nicky Perryman Textile and Mosaic Artist

Peacock on a Hilltop

  ‘Peacock on a Hilltop’ is a small silk painting embroidered by machine using free machine embroidery and by hand too. I’ve used some rayon and stranded cotton threads for the hand stitching (feather stitch and fly stitch. I’ve added lots and lots of sequins to build up the layers of textures especially on the […]

Pretty Peacock

Shimmer shimmer shimmer. It’s taking forever to “sequinize” this peacock embroidery.

Messing Around

This is just a bit of mucking about with some spattered silk dupion as the background. Then I added a section of sequins already bonded onto net tulle, some previously painted silk cut out and appliquéd on in leaf shapes and circles and some ribbon printed with flowers cut out and sewn down. I trapped […]

Green Umbel With Darker Shade

Another update showing the darker looking umbel head with some almost blue-black flowers dotted amongst two shades of lilac ones. I was going to use some reddish purple ones which I thought would go with the purpleish stitching but they turned out to look too reddish and not the right tone at all! I added […]

Umbel Flower Embroidery

Green Umbels update

This one has been hanging around for a while after I finished the chain stitching on it and decided that it needs stretching badly before I can continue with it. Having nowhere to stretch things doesn’t help as the corkboard I used to stretch embroideries on is in my brother’s partner’s dad’s garage collecting dust […]

Catch Up

Hey! Happy new year everyone!  I hope it’s a wonderful and creative year for you! So here’s my progress lately: got back to my van after Christmas and bought an oil-filled radiator…I like cuddling it even though it is rather metallic with sharp edges which are too hard to put my bare legs on without […]

Underbrush embroidery by Nicky Perryman Textile Artist

The Charm of the Underbrush

Here are a few pics of the Underbrush work I’ve been doing…the melted sequins meant a few casualties – particularly one large cream flower sequin which ended up looking like a blob of chewing gum. Charming. So I had to scrape that off and sew another one in the same spot and melt it again […]

Growing Complexity

I have been working on my Underbrush picture for a few days now and keep adding and adding more layers to it, trying to get away from it’s rather sombre original colour scheme. I seem to be getting rather obsessed with using an ever increasing number of sequins in layers on it, overlapping them and putting more […]

Purple Sequin experiment

Sequin Experiments

I’ve been working on some experiments with textures using sequins and bondaweb. I am quite pleased with how they have turned out. Some better than others though. I think it depends on the fabrics, fine silk and net seem to work better than textured fabrics with lots of stitching on them already although several layers […]
