KATHERINE BEEFHEART

 

Katherine Beefheart is a self-taught embroiderer from Manchester who uses cross stitch to express, occasionally sweary, philosophy.

 

What started as a hobby 15 years ago has now become an obsession to articulate what she considers important messages.

All of her unique work is designed and painstakingly produced, with some pieces taking months to complete.  Influenced by her somewhat dying craft and the strong belief in keeping it alive, Katherine drags it into the present with a modern flourish and her tongue firmly in her cheek.

 

Overheard snippets of conversations, song lyrics, film quotes and choice words from her own thoughts on the world around her form the basis of her work."
