Charlotte Macmillan is a multi-disciplinary artist. Working under the name The Collagist, she uses digital art, embroidery and traditional paper collage to subvert images. Having been a freelance photographer in London for 22 years, she left London to live in Somerset with her family and concentrated on creating wearable art. Self-taught on a vintage Cornely chain stitcher and Irish embroidery machines, Charlotte creates subversively stitched outfits for performers such as Boy George, Coldplay and John Grant as well as spending her time in her studio messing up photos and found objects with more thread and fabric, painting and sculpting.
