Chrissie Seager says "I love working with textiles. I work in
sketchbooks and also utilise the computer to design my pieces but mostly
improvise directly from the fabric. I hand dye and screenprint my own
fabrics, then add the detailed design using dyes, fabric paints and
discharge agents. The fabrics are machine and hand stitched, mostly into
quilts but also into small embroideries.
My work is very abstract and includes my own mark making and text."
