Siân Martin uses textiles to convey movement and layers in her art. As well as the natural beauty of the landscape, her work makes connections with ideas of conservation.  View a selection of the innovative textile works by Siân Martin the Gallery.

Siân uses cloth, paper and stitch to make textiles inspired by places and events within her home environment of Somerset, and in particular the moors and wetland areas.

She includes non textile materials such as locally grown willow and uses the natural environment to weather and colour fabrics.   She works with experimental ways of joining multiple shapes to create illusions of movement and sometimes actual movement.
