Now here’s some inspiring textile art! Melbourne artist Louise Saxton makes amazing works by salvaging and reconstructing old textiles – like this ‘Flaming Flamingo’, made from reclaimed needlework, lace pins and nylon tulle.

You can see more of Louise’s creations here and read about her adventures in art here. You can also buy editioned pigment prints of original artworks via her Etsy store, Sanctuary Prints.
