Dinny Turner

Textile Artist

Textile pictures in the form of Rag Rugs using hand dyed calico. I am inspired by flowers, their shapes and colour and the many layers of them as seen in gardens and nature

I started making proddy rag rugs whilst training at Chelsea School of Art studying Constructed Textiles.  All the ones I made were either for a commission or sold privately,  some 30 years later I have started making them again and I love them as much now as I did then! 

Collage is a medium I have always used for picture making and using the fragments normally discarded I am creating new material collages.
