Sue Stone is a UK based textile artist who is best known for textural, figurative compositions that often feature a fish.
“The fish is a symbol of my Grimsby heritage. It represents who I am and reminds me where I came from”
Sue’s inspiration is drawn from the seen, the heard and the experienced; personal relationships, life observations and a pride in her heritage. Her work has an emphasis on hand embroidery mixed with machine stitch and paint.
Sue gives talks and delivers workshops throughout the UK and has recently taught in France and Canada and online for Textileartist.org which is run by her two sons Joe and Sam with whom she is pictured above.
Sue studied Embroidery at Goldsmiths College in London. She is an exhibiting member of the 62 Group of Textile Artists (Chair 2013 to 2018), a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and a member of SEW
