Felicity Griffin Clark:

Artist, curator and co-director of Counterweave Arts Gallery & Workshop, I am an Australian mixed media and textile artist based in Rome.  I have been working with textiles since 2005 and have exhibited in Australia, the UK, Italy, Germany, France, South Africa and the United States.

I use a range of media and techniques to combine colours, textures and meanings in unconventional ways. I like to learn traditional craft skills and use them unexpectedly: embroidery and sutures, textiles, goldwork, silk, old linens, mulberry bark and porcelain slip. I like people to be puzzled and intrigued by my work: able to recognise elements (such as embroidery stitches) but surprised by the context, or by the meaning of the work.

I am a member of the Society for Embroidered Work.
