Sophie Standing

The ever-popular Sophie Standing is back with a new exhibit at The Talisman. Well known for her intricate textile art, Standing appliques complex fabric collages onto canvas, then ‘draws’ further details with her sewing machine in vibrant thread colours. With a history of exhibitions and commissioned work in Kenya, South Africa, the United Kingdom and Germany, her work is created from an extensive collection of international fabrics and is inspired by the flora and fauna of Africa, which she has called home since 2003. Originally from Hampshire, England, Standing studied wood, metal, ceramics and textiles at Liverpool Hope University and, in addition to her textile art, works in a range of media, including life drawing.
