Lily Sutton

I am a multi-disciplinary artist with my primary focus being within textiles and introducing mixed media components. I am coming to the end of my master’s degree in Contemporary Crafts where the focus of my work was on exploring the female body in different stages of our lives using the female Archetypes of maiden, mother and crone. My range of works varies from line drawings to weaving, jesmonite body casts to embroidery and stitch.

My work explores the way we view the female body and aims to make people question their thoughts and opinions about the female form. With so much access to social media at our fingertips we are constantly made to compare and criticise the way we look. I use my work as an outlet to not only help myself love my body but to help other women also see how beautiful and varied we are.
