Corinne Young is a textile artist who creates botanically-inspired, three-dimensional embroidered artwork. She completed a degree in Textile Design at Bradford College in 2003, and still uses the handmade flax fibre paper she developed during her degree as a base for her embroidery. This plant based material is robust and has a natural stiffness, which works really well with the layers of stitch to make her 3D work.

Corinne’s current collections are all about the flowers she studies in her garden and antique botanical books, flower myths and meanings, as well as artefacts found in historic houses (particularly 17th century stumpwork). The collection of framed work exhibited here is called ‘Florilegium’ and is inspired by the botanical specimens depicted in a 17th century book by Basillius Besler, which Corinne has studied at the RHS Library in London.

In recent years, and after moving to the countryside, Corinne’s own work has become increasingly inspired by plants. It has progressed from 2D framed pieces through to stumpwork, and finally to 3D sculptures and dioramas.

Corinne has featured in national and international publications including Country Living magazine. She has exhibited widely in galleries throughout the UK, exhibits her work at the Chelsea Flower Show and has a collection of her plant sculptures available in Bonadea, a store in the Belgravia area of London. She has also undertaken several large commissions and residencies. Her work is in private collections all over the world.
