Chloe grew up in South London before moving to the East End and beginning her studies at the London College of Fashion at the age of 16. She left LCF with a Masters Degree in surface textiles for fashion. This birthed her love of textiles and thread.
Since then she has married, had children, spent several years overseas and via a few creative avenues, built her practice as an embroidery artist.
Chloe hand embroiders large scale, intricately detailed art-work as well as wearable pieces. Her style is hyper-realistic impressionism, using food and nostalgia as the inspiration for her work. Food carries memory and culture. It tells our stories.
At first glance Chloe's work could be mistaken for paint. But the atypical medium and texture of thread forces the viewer to question what they see.
The event is open from Wednesday 3rd Nov - Sunday 7th November
