Here’s a sample of what textile artist Sue de Vanny can do with a Reece Scannell photo textile panel . It’s amazing . Originally a scene of statues in a garden in a Viennese palace. Now an embellished elephants head . This evocative piece radiates sadness of the elephants plight in its beautiful detailed thread work .
Awarded first prize in the Victorian Art Quilt Awards
The piece will join the Transformations : Photorealism in Thread Textile Art Collection in future exhibitions along with more contributing artists . You can see this masterpiece along with many other treasures at the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair Melbourne Convention Centre.

Reece Scannell came into the textile business after an illustrious international career as a photographer with his pictures featuring in premier exhibitions in Australia and Europe.
His passion for fashion lured him from behind the lens, but Reece has applied a similar focus on unique, one-off imagery in hand screening textiles for clothing, interior design, quilting, patchwork and other forms of crafting.
Reece’s textilework is as fascinating as his background with his photographs being featured in renowned collections at the National Library of Australia, the Australian Film Institute and the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.
He has even participated in archaeological expeditions to Greece and Egypt with resulting photographic exhibitions in the British Museum.
Reece Scannell Mode in Australia is now ranked in the top Australian design companies with his outstanding creativity in lifestyle fabrics, including hand woven shot cotton with individual threads dyed to create a distinctive silky sheen effect.
