More black work samples, which are very time consuming. The stitched birds seem to work better than the inanimate objects; the wheelie bin seems to be missing depth and texture which I could add through applique of hand painted screen print. I have been playing around with these images in compositions and patterns for commercial designs for childrens interior fabrics or wrapping paper... pictures to follow!
I hand craft greetings cards for all sorts of occassions, and I am more than happy to take commissions! I am also a Textile Artist creating hand stitched images reinterpreted from drawn observations of the nature and environment around me.
