Tunbridge Wells based textile artist Anne Kelly is an award-winning artist, author and tutor.
Her multi-layered and densely stitched textiles have been described as ‘small worlds’. Trained
in Canada and at Goldsmiths College, London, her artwork is created using a combination
of mixed media collage and hand and machine embroidery. Her inspirations are taken from
travel, memory, nature and folk art.
Anne teaches fine art and textiles in the UK and abroad and is a member of the Embroiderers
Guild UK, the Crafts Council Directory and the Society for Embroidered Work. She also exhibits
and curates group exhibitions nationally and internationally.
Anne has kindly created and donated “Home over the Rainbow”, a piece of textile art
especially for the Art of Kent auction. She used her handmade NHS thank you rainbow, which
was displayed in her front window during lockdown, as the starting point for this piece of work.
