Vicky Glyn is a textile artist doing mainly contemporary patchwork. Her work is mainly textile wall hangings with a timeless but contemporary feel, based on ancient patterns. Her designs tend to by geometric and kaleidoscopic.
Her work expresses a spiritual quality. Ideally she would like each piece to contain a 'door into the next world' somehow.
Her work has been selected and displayed at the V&A museum, and she has had several successful solo exhibitions. She has done commissions for clients in Scandinavia, UK and Venice.
I paint and sculpt and build and when I'm not doing that I ride my bike as fast as I can.
Right now I'm painting the British heroes of the peloton and velodrome, people like Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Bradley Wiggins. I love cycling so being able to combine two of my passions like this really lights me up.
