Bob & Eve



Bob & Eve is a pseudonym for textile artist Corinna Wilson.  The name evolved from the words bobbin and weave in reference to her use of textiles as a medium.  Working from her studio in Brighton she creates one off pieces of art in wool using a combination of hand tufted and machine based techniques.  Corinna grew up in a fairly traditional household surrounded by tapestries, cross stitch and patchwork quilts which instilled in her a love of creating, crafting and textiles. She graduated from the University of Brighton in 2001 with a degree in Illustration and after working as both a commercial illustrator and running a homewares business she was looking to create work with a tactile, handcrafted feel to it and so began working with wool.  Inspired by the natural world she aims to tread a line between form and abstraction to allow the viewer some room for their own interpretations. She loves the textures and 3-d form that the works take on in wool.
