People Flowers Leaves, 2021
Embroidery on fabric
15 x 15 cm
Lisa Trim’s work is full of colour and lively characters, animals, plants, historical figures and domestic objects.
In this new work, Lisa takes her bright colourful style into patch works of embroidery. Working on a small scale she creates sewn sketches where floral designs are combined with houses, figures and occasionally insects. Influences on Lisa’s sewing practice include 19th century needlework samplers and embroidery and quilting from the V&A collection. These initial sewn plans will inform a more ambitious embroidery project in 2021.
