Katie Tume is an embroidery artist from Brighton, East Sussex. Born in 1980, she is a fifth-generation needleworker who first learned her craft at her mother’s knee. She attended the Surrey Institute of Art and Design as a Fashion and Illustration student, but is largely self-taught in hand embroidery techniques. She completed her first formal training in 2015 at The Royal School of Needlework in Coloured Metal Threadwork.
You can read about her fictional muse Mother Eagle here, in a short story she wrote about her.
Katie’s work is influenced by folklore, mythology, pagan societies and the old Gods. She is currently working on projects around ritualising animal death, and lost species.
