Here I am:

Sorry haven't been around much. Life has just got in the way of making art. This displeases me greatly.... Oh.

Anyways, here I am, back, giving you an update of what's happened in my world today. Which luckily involved some art shenanigans.... 

Here is my little studio, oh how I've missed you....

Today's play involved an old magazine and a knife....

And also meeting a taxidermy stag at my local tattoo parlour.....

Say hello to my new tattoo....

and a sketch on the endless craving of desire....

and lastly please remember to hang your raincloud out on the line to dry....

I'm pretty sure that's it for now, over and out....

nobody is home:


Found images (from vintage photos/books/magazines), image transfer onto fabric and then stitch.....





open studio: closed studio


Well it has been a busy old few weeks but also a great experience with my first open studio at ASC studio's Kingston, as part of the Kingston Open Arts. I have included some pictures of my open studio below so you get a flavour of it. I met some fantastic people and I am really grateful for all the support I received from family and friends. I sold some work and feel super fired up creatively now! Thank you xxx










 

 










articles of identity:


As some of you know I have been working on this project for a while. It has now developed into a hand stitched fabric book and will be part of a series called 'Articles of Identity'. This will be shown during  Kingston Artist Open Studios which starts next week as part of the Kingston Art Trail!















platonic solids:


I find magic in geometry.


I like the idea it presents of finding order in space.


This was my inspiration for my new tattoo today: the five platonic solids, the basis of the universe.

Happy is me.

I am still slowly working on my missing person/identity series.
I have been thinking of making them into a book of sorts... a kind of sinister family photo album maybe.

Todays works in progress:

Here are some pics from over at Instagram which I use as a kind of visual journal.... Pop over and say hello... My name over there is stitch_therapy.... I am currently covered head to toe in plaster of Paris. 

I loves making a mess! 








More stuckness abounds....
