Blending the Old with the New
28th August 2020
Knitting has been around for centuries. Digital art is brand new. So, it takes a highly creative artist to bring the two of them together – something Faith Humphrey Hill has achieved in breathtaking style.
She sketches her portraits on her iPad, then using digital technology, converts them to knitting patterns. Then, she puts the technology away and gets the knitting needles out.
Once she’s knitted her background and blocked it carefully, she goes back to the technology to complete her work.
The results are a unique blend of the old and the new, with both being just as important in the final piece. What a gorgeous lesson from a truly creative artist.
