Below are some stitched pieces I particularly like. They were created by Tilleke Schwarz an artist  from the Netherlands. The composition of the pieces are interesting I also like the use of colour and the amount of detail incorporated within each piece.

I like to create collages from a range of found materials. Often my collage pieces are inspired by nature or beautiful landscapes, which I eventually translate in to knitted samples.

The quirky pieces shown below are by illustrator Michelle Thompson. Her work is inspirational as it is not only very interesting but also quite different to the style in which I tend to work. Some of her work is shown below. To find out more about Michelle Thompson please click here.

Splashy paint and drip marks are aspects, which have featured quite heavily in some of my more recent design work. I will post some photographs of my sketchbook once I have got a bit more done, but for now here are some interesting pieces by Lora Zombie using some similar techniques. My favourite piece is shown directly below.
