Chloe Morter

Chloe lives near Honiton, in East Devon. She creates embroidered textile collage artworks inspired by nature -particularly the birds and beasts within the landscape.

Her work combines the intricacy of machine embroidery with layers of background collage.

Starting on a linen ground, her initial embroidery designs are developed from drawings and photos and run on a dedicated embroidery machine. This is overworked with free motion embroidery stitching to add detail.

The background is made from scraps of recycled and often very old careworn fabric, plus prints and handmade paper combined in an impressionistic and loose style of collage. Colour, texture and pattern are an obsession alongside a passion for folk art, art history and illustration.
