Welcome

I am Chrissie Messenger: textile artist and yoga teacher

I like to work with textiles and paint, ink and crayon.  My portraits are usually machine stitched, but I work by hand as well.

My work can be put into roughly three categories: portraits, India, and politics.

I am influenced by colour, so most of my work is bright.  This probably comes from my many, many visits to India.  Nowhere feels ‘right’ like Mother India does!

Many of my subjects are members of my family. Others come from newspaper cuttings.

I make my images from photographs and adapt them as seems fit.  I am happy to take commissions.
