textiles
My grandmother taught me how to knit, crochet and sew. Then I forgot all about it … until recently. In what seems like the blink of an eye, I have moved from hurling crucibles full of molten iron to stitching the delicate wing of a moth onto pure silk. I have made insects from red velvet, tiny birds and spindly spiders from discarded table linen and crochet blankets which are reminiscent of woodland walks and underwater scenes! The fact that this type of work is portable is very appealing to me, as I can barely take a short train journey without getting itchy fingers, and having a small piece of embroidery stashed in my bag satisfies my need to create on the move!

Who might this turn out to be? I wonder? Will she have fur? Or antlers? Or moss? Or all of those thing? #spiritdoll #workinprogress #goddess #take13artists
This began in Pembrokeshire and was finished today in Kinver! A little unseasonal I know, but a hare was in my ‘head queue’ 😂 I am enjoying these creatures that want to be painted. “I am the Hare” available as cards, prints and canvases. DM me for details. Happy Friday lovelies! #hare #harebells #mystery #watercolor #painting #print #take13artists
Hope everyone is ok, having a day that has gone between fine and fearful, so for now I shall paint fur on a hare because I am lucky that I can ... #hare #painting #shapeshifter #take13artists
