About the Author

About Amanda Hislop

Amanda Hislop has a degree in woven textiles and painting, studying at West Surrey College of Art and Design from 198386. She began her career as a teacher in art and textiles but in 2007 she took the opportunity of redundancy to pursue an exciting creative pathway as a textile artist and tutor. In her work she combines drawing, painting and stitch, developing a process which allows freedom to integrate texture, line and colour into surfaces for stitch. Amanda is a member of Prism textile exhibiting group, Oxfordshire Craft Guild and the Embroiderers’ Guild.
