Eugenie Alexander

Someone has kindly sent me a link to a  wonderful little pathe film about Eugenie Alexander who created many of the illustrations for my Fabric Pictures Book. An unusually attentive husband! Good to see a woman making her living from fabric collage so long ago.

More Winifred

Another still Life collage inspired by a painting from Winifred Nicholson. I am not very happy with my photographs at the moment but hope it gives you a clue. Hope to run a course on this in the Autumn.

Dogs

Today I have been constructing some little collages around a few dog cigarette cards that I have been meaning to use for sometime. These will be made into handmade cards and will be available at our Open Studios event on 7/8 May.
