Fabulous Fenland sunsets proved the inspiration for an award winning textile work created by Wisbech artist Patricianne Jones.

Ms Jones’ work called Sunset won the top prize at the Atelier East summer show, staged at Wisbech and Fenland Museum.

This year’s exhibition featured work from more than 30 artists, and visitors were asked to nominate their favourite work both online and in person.

Ms Jones said: “ The inspiration for Sunset was a series of photographs I took from my bedroom window, of evening skies and flocks of birds.

“It is a collage of organza and net, embellished with hand stitching and beads. I love combining the colours and textures of fabrics with threads and beads and watching the process of an original idea evolve into a finished piece.”
