artist designer & embroiderer

My name is Valerie Carr and I am a professional artist, designer and slow stitch embroiderer, translating my artwork into repeat patterns to create stationery, embroideries and textiles.
I always aim to create atmosphere within my designs and projects and I do this by mindfully combining colours, lines and textures that complement and 'talk' to each other. It's a very instinctive and enjoyable process.
Being very much in tune with the contemporary slow stitch embroidery movement, I also curate combinations of my own fabric designs to create slow stitch fabric bundles for other slow stitchers to explore their own individual creativity.
