About

Victoria Mathewson

I am a self taught embroidery artist who has been sewing since about the age of 10. I live in a tiny village in South Wales, however I was born in Buckinghamshire and brought up on the South Coast of England. I studied art at A-level and then went on to study drama at Guildford School of Acting. When I met my husband I decided I wanted the stable life that couldn’t be found in acting. We now live in Wales with our two beautiful girls.

My previous work concentrated on the nature of the British Isles and while this is still my first love and I will probably always come back to it, by working under my own name I will have the opportunity to branch out in the future, to go with my instinct.

I mostly use a needle painting technique (thread painting or silk shading if you prefer) however, I generally just go with whatever feels right and works in the context of the piece.
