Cathy Jack Coupland

Australian textile artist Cathy Jack Coupland is best known for her vibrantly coloured embroidered quilts covered in thousands upon thousands of machine made stitch.


Using simple techniques, representational and abstract designs Cathy transforms soft substrates into compressed, rigid textiles, rippling with masterful fabric manipulation.


Cathy uses the machine needle as a sketching, drawing and colouring tool, exploiting the age-old allure of thread and stitch collaborating to produce uniquely tactile artworks.  She says ‘I love to see a design come to life under the machine, day by day, simply by the addition of time and stitch.  It’s mesmerizing.’


As her career evolves, Coupland devotes herself to exhibiting throughout the world and has work held in many private collections.
