Alison Wake - Cognissart

Textile Artist

Living in the heart of the Peak District National Park, Alison is inspired by the natural landscapes surrounding her home. She is also influenced by the impact of humanity on the area and her images often draw on industrial and agricultural features.

Her fine art works are hand stitched, predominantly using locally sourced, hand- dyed wool. She “paints with thread and yarn”.

An award winning artist, Alison has been featured on Instagram by Tate Britain. She is a member of Peak District Artisans and The Society for Embroidered Work.
