Welcome to Denise Lithgow Designs

My two dimensional works are colourful,vibrant textile abstracts which are inspired by the landscape.In these I visulise hills and valleys or the coastline where the sea meets the land. These works are created using free machine embroidery and are built up with layers of coloured fabrics,some of which have been hand dyed and working with, "what feels right", I layer the fabrics creating visual landscapes,stitching,then overlaying and repeating the process to build up the design. My felt works are done in a similar way, by first creating the felt as a landscape piece, then stitching into the felt to create foreground, middle ground and background landscapes.

I create sculptural felt vessels employing very simplistic lines.Once I was introduced to felt I was captivated by its tactile qualities, rich colours and the magic messing of fibres which can then be manipulated into forms and shapes to create vessels and exotic wearable art.

I am represented in galleries through out Australia and internationally and I exhibit my textile art and sculpture regularly in group exhibitions, art prizes and international exhibitions.

I teach Felting workshops and have continued to do many workshops and textile forums which keep me in touch with latest practices and allows for swapping of ideas with colleagues.

I have won prizes with my work and been published in textile magazines.Contact me regarding commissions and sale of my works
