Sue Keen’s Works

Valued and much missed member, the late Sue Keen was an artist and maker and had stitched ever since she could hold a needle. For many years Sue was on the committee of Peterborough Artists’ Open Studios and she exhibited with PAOS for well over a decade. Sadly Sue passed away last year, and it’s at the wish of her daughter Kerry that some of Sue’s work will be shown during PAOS for one last time. Her work in textiles and mixed media took inspiration from nature and what she saw around her. Her love of combining different techniques and materials included beading, collage and both hand and free machine embroidery. She liked to experiment and enjoyed learning different ways of working and also found joy in helping and teaching others to find their own way within craft and art.

Sue’s work will be on display at her friend Prue Pye’s venue.  Any money raised from sales of Sue’s work will be donated to charity.

In Sue’s own words:

‘Fabric forms the base of much of my work along with stitch and embellishments to create art works based on nature. I also manipulate fabric and stitch to create wearable art, continually developing processes for unique items.

I have developed bead work incorporating goldwork embroidery. I am still basing work on natural forms with the use of colour and texture in the forefront of my work. It is a time consuming process as each bead is sewn on individually to form wearable pieces of art, in this case brooches.
