Statement of Work
Drawing on Brenda Parsons’ background as a geographer, it is not surprising that the natural environment is the context and inspiration for most of her mixed media textiles. She enjoys travel and is inspired by colours, textures and cultures around the world. These themes feed her passion for working with paper and found objects. Her current work includes large installations and smaller stitched collages.
Brenda is drawn to the lightness in weight of paper and the way that white paper re-cycled and hand-made brings a tranquility to her contemporary pieces, small and large. She enjoys working with white stitched paper lace, but current pieces do incorporate some colour. She also enjoys working with felted knit, paper lace accessories and wire.
