Cherry and Cinnamon is Bridgeen Gillespie, an illustrator with embroidery and fabric design on her mind!
An erstwhile comic creator, these days my illustrations have taken on a more textile form, and I’ve exhibited fine art embroidery portraits at various venues around the UK (including ‘Hemmed In’ and the ‘Knitting and Stitching show’ as part of Mr X Stitch’s curated exhibitions). You can also find my contemporary embroidery designs for sale in my Etsy shop.
This year as a fabric designer I produced a collection of Derry/Londonderry inspired fabric designs exhibited in the form of a quilt to celebrate the UK City of Culture 2013. You can read all about that here: City of Culture Heritage Fabrics
