'Autumn Glade' is one of the latest of Bernadette's original works that we are showing, after a tremendous reception for her debut in the gallery back in the summer.
They are constructed from handmade felt, partly quilted, and numerous tiny beads and embroidery stitches.
Every detail has been represented, including the bark and hollows on the tree trunks, the light emerging from the depths of the scene and the shadows cast across the flower-carpeted banks. Lovers of Bernadette's work say they never tire of gazing into the picture to pick out all the details.
They are many hours in the making, of course, and a very unusual way to present a woodland or flower-carpeted scene. They are also marvels of textile engineering - and very distinctive artworks for the home.
