About Beatrice Mayfield

Beatrice Mayfield is a London-based textile artist, who specialises in handcrafted, embellished textiles, merging tradition with contemporary design. Her textile work embeds heritage within the contemporary. A realm where traditional techniques and processes blend with the energy and language of abstract mark-making.

Guided by a palette of traditional couture embroidery techniques, stitches, and processes. Her artistry thrives on the fusion of the old and the new, where history speaks to the future to create pieces that occupy this space. The foundation of Beatrice's work is the rhythm of couture-level embellishment and embroidery. Each piece is a canvas where her marks find a voice through meticulous stitches and surface manipulation.

Reuse and Reimagine have always been part of her artistic ethos. Working with deadstock fabrics, discarded offcuts and haberdashery from the worlds of theatre, dance, and film. Beatrice's pieces are a testament to the history of repurposing and reimagining discarded textiles.

Drawing inspiration from the juxtaposition of urban architecture and nature's sublime beauty thriving side by side. With every mark made with thread, bead or sequin, Beatrice creates micro-intricate narratives.

Beatrice Mayfields portfolio includes unique abstract artworks and bespoke commercial projects. With a decade of collaboration, she has created intricate textural surfaces for interiors, fashion and film, clients include HBO, the Royal School of Needlework and All Saints
