Karen Fullalove is an artisan and designer based in the UK making traditional woven embroideries. She uses canvas embroidery and inlaid woven embroidery techniques. Both are traditional techniques; early surviving examples being from the 13th century and between 5th to 9th centuries, respectively. Canvas embroidery has historically been used as decoration on walls and furniture. It’s a slow art, taking many hours, as every part of the base canvas is covered.Her designs combine ancient symbols and empowering nature forms. Having studied ancient symbolism, complementary therapies and meditation, she has a fascination with the power of intuitive communication. Karen’s desire is to initiate, or recreate, this powerful, beautiful and uniting language.
