I've been a big fan New Zealand designer Jane Denton for several years, having first interviewed her on the blog back in 2013. Creating unique textile art that is lively and fresh but also timeless, Jane is making a name for herself not only here in NZ, but around the world. Her work has been featured on many top global blogs, and can be seen in the homes of leading designers such as US stylist Emily Henderson.
Using wool or cotton stitched onto canvas, Jane says "I really love creating something beautiful and bringing a little bit of happiness to people's homes." As a proud owner of two Jane Denton artworks, I can say that they've brought an enormous amount of happiness into ours!
Working hard at her craft over Summer, Jane has just released a stunning new series, and I'm delighted to share it with you today. The five new artworks bring with them all the texture and delicacy of previous ones, but with a more sophisticated and refined look. Achieved by using cotton rather than wool, and some very subtle metallic threads stitched over some of the lighter colours, the pieces are exquisite. I love the softer palettes which have hints of silver and gold, the boldness of the blues tones and of course the large black on white piece is incredibly striking.
Jane also does commissions, and has recently worked on larger scale pieces for some overseas clients.
