artist profile - Cathy Cullis
Cathy Cullis born 1969, in London England. Studied English and Art at university but considers herself a self-taught textile artist. Fascinated by dolls and nostalgic needlework baskets of years ago, her work is informed by ideas on domesticity, childhood, memories and happenstance.
A published, award-winning poet, Cathy's dolls are like poems, being both simple and complex. She loves to work small and even teeny-tiny. Her work is in private collections all over the world.
