We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

My third piece has been a working sample for a larger abstract work I am finishing at the moment. I have tried to express the route travelled through the creative journey,  discarding the fragments of old ideas and techniques and searching for the glimmers of inspiration  that gather together to become the next design. 

The fabric was coloured with procion dyes and some wax pigments then over laid with the 'fragments' of organza and painted and distressed fusible web. The 'glimmers' were scraps of gold leaf applied with ormaline.


  1. There's huge movement in this- a real explosion and force.Lovely subtle colours as well. I shall look forward to seeing the large piece one day in the future! See you in Birmingham.

  2. Wish I was going to Birmingham again this year. . . . Sigh. . . . Anyway, your colors seem to glow from within this piece and the design is amazing. I love how you've captured so much energy! Great work.
