Brenda Bradford

Whilst living in Brighton word would go round that the murmuration was happening and Brenda would rush to the West Pier to watch. She never got tired of watching this phenomena and it has inspired her to interpret it in thread and fabric. Brenda’s work doesn’t relate to literal interpretations just the shapes, energy and colours. She calla her murmuration work, her magic embroideries, when light hits the surface more of the stitches show up glistening like stars in the sky. This is because she uses metallic threads,  some multi coloured, giving an even more exciting dimension. It is a deliberate choice not to use a sewing machine as it is the tactile connection of the hand sewing process that she loves, finding it therapeutic and meditative.
