Xenobia Bailey is an American artist who uses crochet and stitching techniques with beading to create brightly coloured geometric tapestry crochet inspired by African and Native American culture. She took this interest further by studying ethnomusicology and millinery and tailoring courses at college. She also creates traditional African headpieces which has gained the interest of costume designers for use in film and advertising. Bailey’s signature stitch known as the ‘liquid stitch’ creates a visual effect of dripping, seen in many of her pieces. Xenobia Bailey is a huge inspiration for my artwork as I enjoy using bright colours in my practise alongside textile mediums. Her wall pieces I am immediately drawn to as they appear like digital drawings due to the precision of skill and attention to detail in her work.
