Artwork By Emily Tull

Wildlife and portraiture artworks created with contemporary hand stitching

Kent artist Emily Tull graduated from KIAD in 2000. Since then, she has exhibited internationally, regularly in London, and across the UK in group and solo shows. Winning a Kent Creative Award for Visual Art (2017) she has also been a finalist in the Winter Pride Art Awards (2015), and selected for the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition, Mall Galleries, Wells Art Contemporary, Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize in 2015 and 2023, and has been a contestant in Sky Art's Portrait Artist of the Year 2014.

Inspiration comes from many sources including Lucien Freud, Francis Bacon, Curiosity Cabinets, ripped wallpaper, Egyptian tomb paintings and the Pre-Raphaelites. The work covers a range of subjects based upon everyday life and literature. Since 2011 I have used wildlife imagery to experiment with fabrics, predominately British species but I am also inspired by curiosity cabinet displays and my mother's bee collection. The actual sewing is quite a random act unless it is a face, where I start with the eye and work out from there. I will flit from colour to colour thread cross hatching, weaving the thread over and under until I am happy with the overall effect, I compare it to using colouring pencils. I am striving to close the gap to what is deemed 'craft' and what is art.
