Hayley Mills Styles

For as long as I can remember I have been working with fabric and thread. These skills were passed down by my paternal grandmother who didn’t always appreciate my efforts, especially when I deconstructed my clothes and soft furnishings to see how they were made.

Things have changed since those early days but I still love to experiment with textiles. I use them to tell stories about my life, produce commission pieces for other artists and teach people the skills that I learned as a child. My work combines traditional techniques with digital embroidery and sculptural elements, transforming them into textile drawings and objects.
