Texture on Textile

I really enjoyed creating these new Collographs, especially those printed on textile. Looking forward to working into some of them with stitch etc

Hello February!

Well so much for New Year’s resolution to focus on planning for the year – January gone and have only managed to gather information about some forthcoming shows/call for artists but have done nothing with them – and have missed some deadlines!

BUT I have completely re-organised my Studio Room and started a new teaching job plus three events now booked for 2014 so maybe not so bad after all.

On the downside no Blogs so far in 2014 – have been a very bad girl – and no new work to show yet. So instead I will continue sharing some of my past projects.

So inspired by my friend Jenny’s fabulous photos of ancient Hornbeams I have decided to share some of my tree studies.

Spirograph for Grown Ups

HAPPY ACCIDENTS

My Foundation Diploma show developed from designs I made using a Spirograph and the wonderful discovery that ‘mistakes’ can be beautiful too.  My Tutor, Lee, was pleased that I had finally broken my Virgo-led tendency towards perfection!

These versions are created using a range of string and twine.

Watch the Birdie

Love this little felted bird which I made last week at Jenny’s workshop. Although I have done 2D needle felting before this is my first 3D effort so feeling very pleased with myself. Mind you it was really due to Jenny’s patient teaching skills.

PS I haven’t had time to add his feet yet!
