Alison Holt

Alison Holt is a contemporary UK textile artist with a Fine Art Embroidery BA Hons degree from Goldsmiths College, London, specialising in freehand machine embroidery.

Using a basic Bernina sewing machine and just 2 stitches, straight stitch and zig-zag  Alison makes embroidered pictures of landscapes, seascapes, flowers and garden scenes, influenced by the Shropshire Wales border near Oswestry where I live and by my travels.

Alison regularly exhibits internationally and is a regular exhibitor at the Chelsea Flower Show in London and other venues in Europe and Australasia.
