My name is Valerie Carr and I am a professional watercolour artist and textile/embroidery designer. I create digitally printed fabrics from my own original watercolours and I enhace them with creative hand embroidery. My style of embroidery is in tune with the current slow stitch embroidery movement as well as the work of more traditional embroiderers of the past. I love the 'no rules' ethosand meditative atmosphere of slow stitch embroidery as well as being in awe of the wonderful skills of historical embroiderers like May Morris.
