Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a sense of humor and creative abandon, renowned mixed-media artist Beryl Taylor shows you how surprisingly easy it is to turn fabric, stitch, and embellishment into artistic treasures to keep and share. Using her own art as examples, Beryl gives step-by-step instructions for making projects like greeting cards, wall hangings, and books using the latest mixed-media techniques, all the while encouraging readers to follow their own instincts and experiment.

In Mixed-Media Explorations you'll learn how to: apply basic design principles like layering, highlighting motifs, and creating grids to give your art depth and meaning; use six simple embroidery stitches to add interest and texture; turn favorite papers into fabrics that can then be stitched or quilted; "age" your art by etching, burning, and tearing; create richness with metallic threads, paint, and rub-ons; "embed" fibers and found objects; use everyday items like brown grocery bags, wallpaper scraps, and bleach to create texture; stitch through metal.

About the Author

Beryl Taylor was born in Rotherham, England, and grew up in the Manchester area where, after showing artistic talent, she studied at the Manchester High School of Art. She spent many years as a wife, mother, and nurse until her artistic leanings were reawakened when she discovered creative embroidery. She trained at the City and Guilds textile and embroidery program and later started the textile group Threadmill with other City and Guilds graduates.

Beryl moved to the United States from England with her family in 2002 and now devotes all of her time to her art. She imaginatively manipulates, dyes, paints, stamps, embroiders, and decorates her papers and fabrics to produce enriching textured effects and vibrant colors. An enduring theme in her work is the incorporation of the heart motif which is, in her words, a reflection of her love for her art. Beryl is currently living and working as a mixed-media artist in Monroe Township, New Jersey.
