Here’s how my enormous textile applique version of the view of the buildings on St Marys Gate from Warser Gate is coming on…
I made a set of cakes for Sylvia’s 90th birthday last week.
The brief was: Playing card themed; Personal; Quirky and Delicious – tick tick tick tick!
It has been a pleasure to return to highly bespoke cake-making, in between my other creative work.
This is shaping up to be a great weekend – with the whole team of 30 artists pulling together to make an eclectic, entertaining and exciting spectacle in Attenborough, Beeston and Chilwell.
Keep the dates free – 1st and 2nd June, 11am to 6pm
One of a series of wild flower field felted artworks…
These depict what I see in the edges of the meadows at Haddon Hall.
A beautiful textural depth of greens with little pops of petal highlights.
The recently created dandelions survived the trip down to West Sussex and became the centrepieces for a gorgeous wedding.
We think they look rather uniquely special!
I will be exhibiting a new collection of felt landscapes at the ABC Art Trail this year, on 1st and 2nd June.
I love the painterly qualities of felting and embroidery and as you can see I’m still in a colourful frame of mind!
I now offer totally bespoke paper roses in my Etsy shop HERE
One recent customer from Staffordshire wanted to combine the lyrics of Beautiful Boy by John Lennon with pictures of the newborn, for a Mother’s Day present.
I used the lyrics on the inside, in different text sizes, and the pictures on the bottom of the roses. A very nice effect!
My very first felt customers got in touch got in touch over the weekend to let me know they had reframed the picture with a green frame and behind a non reflective glass.
They generously sent me pictures of the enhanced artwork in situ.
As a new and developing artist, it makes me feel quite GIDDY that someone is enjoying my work every day!
Being part of the ABC (Attenborough, Beeston and Chilwell) Art Trail was a massive highlight for me last year, for many reasons. Not least because I got to work (and chill) with a lot of lovely creative people.
I am therefore delighted to be part of the team again for 2019.
Save the dates! 1st and 2nd June 2019. More news to follow…
