Amanda Hartland

Amanda’s artwork is created using a technique called appliqué (applying fabric on to another piece of fabric) and free motion machine embroidery, which is drawing with your sewing machine, using your machine needle as a pencil. Paints are then added for skies, seas and shading.

“I’m fortunate to have found my lifelong passion, which is creating machine embroidered art pieces. I hope you enjoy them just as much as I had the pleasure of creating them!”

Amanda is inspired mostly by nature and the coast. She takes her camera everywhere she goes, always looking for that special shot and seeing how she can create her own interpretation of an image through thread.

I was lucky enough to find myself at Fosse House Gallery a few weeks ago. The knowledgeable and friendly owner Shenac, has a wonderful eye and her creative space was packed full of delightful art and gifts. I couldn’t resist leaving without several packets of her delightful signature ‘bee’ cards. I will definitely be back.

Just to say a very big thank you for the excellent framing of our picture, and for all the helpful suggestions and ideas, and good advice – we really love the result! It looks like a totally new picture, it seems to have brought it to life. We will be back.

You have done a great job of framing our Dior vintage poster – after many years we are now about to enjoy it! Excellent Jonny!! Lovely gallery, we wish you every success.

Just had 2 pictures framed of my artwork and am SO pleased with how professional they now look! Jonny was so helpful and took time helping me choose the right frame & knew exactly what I wanted. I’m a novice at this, but Jonny made me feel not only great for such a good job he made on framing my work, but gave my confidence a bit of a boost! Definitely bringing my artwork here again. Thanks Jonny! See you soon! Give Sox a cuddle from me.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the Hockney print. It’s now hanging in the hall for all to see and looks fabulous.
