Unassuming but pretty quilt but as always I can't resist taking the scissors to it. Look what's inside! Can't wait to use that wearing away turkey red fabric for something.

Come in from the cold

Come in from the cold to our Winter Fair and Open Studios event at The Hearth this weekend 18/19 November. The studios of the 10 resident artists will be open and we will as usual be joined by guest exhibitors. The full list HERE

 I have been making a series of chilly animal pictures including arctic hares, foxes and wolves and of course the polar bear. Many new things to see in my studio, including new displays which I will try to share later in the week when I have finally tidied up!

Natural Selection

If you are in or around London this exhibition is not to be missed. Ever since my graduation show I have been obsessed with birds and they creep into my work at all levels. This exhibition looks at nests and birds nests - the locations, materials, techniques ( very textile weaving and knotting), birds eggs and the psychology behind collectors. You have to watch all the films to make it understandable but these are informative  and well presented. It has been one of the best exhibitions I have seen for years. There has been much interest in the exhibition so they have now extended it to November 26th. More info HERE
