Frankie Meaden
Represented by Turua Gallery, and The Frame Gallery.

Touching on topics of sustainability, and how we rely on and are intricately connected to the plant world around us, Frankie Meaden is known for using recycled materials in her work.

Frankie’s art is almost always botanical, with her large-scale sculptural pieces challenging the scale at which embroidery is usually seen. Telling the story of the rich biodiversity of our world using colourful rope and recycled street banners in a way that is both impactful and beautiful.

A multi-disciplinary artist since 2016, combining embroidery with painting. Layering these techniques into canvas or clothing to create textured colourful pieces. Joyful & optimistic, Frankie Meaden’s newer work is a collision of worlds; embroidery, usually so minuscule, blown up into large-scale artwork.
