This was inspired by a study of the work of Gustave Klimt. His highly decorative style translates well into textile. I wanted to express the enjoyment I found in studying Klimt for my final studies in textile art. Appropriately, it is a stitched art piece echoing Klimt's stylised depiction of woman and also a tight decorative patchwork background in a free, asymetrical way to try to emulate his dynamic decorative style. A little gold leaf has been added, naturally, as Klimt is closely associated with his use of that material. Techniques include couching down recycled sari yarn and stitched patchwork made from recycled Indian cotton. The hair is free-machine embroidery with wool. It has been stitched to acrylic felt and stretched onto acid-free background.

It is framed in wood behind art glass (it does not reflect) which makes it heavy. The work is signed on the reverse.
