About Alysn Midgelow-Marsden

Alysn is a successful textile artist, freelance tutor and author with a depth of understanding of mixed media techniques. Unusually for an 'embroiderer' she uses a lot of metals, stitching into the hard shiny surface to create patterns, textures and pictures using both hand stitch and a sewing machine. She teaches, runs workshops and courses, mentors those wishing for more individual attention, and has written three books. She owns The Beetroot Tree Gallery for Contemporary Arts and Artfully Bound Publishing. The latter was founded by Alysn and is in association with Art Van Go. Alysn lives in New Zealand with her family.
