About Barbara Shaw - Textile Artist
"I create art in textiles and ‘paint’ with fabric, making images by hand-stitching small pieces of material together in layers. My work includes elements of both art and craft which reflects my interest in Impressionist paintings and the process of handcrafting. My interpretation of subjects in a fresh way encourages viewers to take a second look at the textures and thread detail."
As well as regularly exhibiting in galleries and exhibitions in the south of England, Barbara has recently been Artist-in-Residence at two National Trust properties: Chastleton House, a 17thC House in the Cotswolds and Claydon House, an 18thC House in Buckinghamshire.
In 2014 Barbara was awarded a prize for Excellence in Craft in Oxfordshire and a picture was purchased for the Oxfordshire County Museum collection. Barbara's work has also featured in magazines such as Cotswold Life, Be Creative with Workbox and Craft and Design and Leisure Painter.
Barbara is a Member of Oxfordshire Craft Guild and a Licentiate Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
