the cat in the shoe
"The cat in the shoe' is the creation of Lucy Brasher a self taught textile artist.
Working from her studio in Dorset Lucy's work focuses on the animal form incorporating the human element. Her work has a touch of whimsy with a darker undertone much like the fables and folklore that have influenced them. All of Lucy's work is created by hand and machine using predominantly reclaimed and re-purposed fabrics. Completely self taught having studied in Fine Art and Photography Lucy began experimenting in textiles in 2010 and found a love for the medium;
'fabric is a forgiving and flexible medium to work with it can become anything it wishes even if its life began as something else. An old jumper an unloved leather jacket a scrap of lace and an off-cut of felt. In my mind these could become a whimsical being straight from the pages of a book you read as a child’. "
