About me and my work...

Sue Rangeley creates bespoke embroidered textiles with inventive flair combined with fine craftsmanship - unique works of art for fashion and interiors. She focuses on detailed free machine embroidery, beadwork, delicate silk appliqué, hand-painting, and an array of artful embellishments. She specializes in beautiful, crafted embroideries for contemporary dress, one-off accessories, or framed textile art.

International exhibitions and teaching in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan have brought wider recognition. Her works are held in public and private collections worldwide, an early quilted jacket for the designer Bill Gibb is in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Sue has received numerous awards for her creative activities; in 2009 she received a National Lottery & Arts Council England grant for curating 'A Wearable Art' exhibition, in Oxfordshire.

The studio in her 18th century Oxfordshire home reflects the diversity of Sue's creative work: a gallery of her botanical paintings, collections of embroidered samples and design portfolios.
