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.

Late Autumn flurry

Whilst out and about in London having a break from meetings - I went for a walk in Green Park on a brooding dark November day - the sky was a heavy steel blue and the wind got up in gusts sending the leaf debris in spirals then falling down to earth almost confetti like. The colours of the maple leaves as they swirled around  was spectacular against the sky. So having run out of time - used these remembered images  as a source for the final piece of 2012.

The back ground is hand dyed pima cotton which was machine quilted - the leaf debris is hand dyed silks of different weights which I have raw edge appliqued in place. A very quick piece to meet  the deadline but needs must!



  1. Lots of dancing movement in this lovely piece; it does look just like leaves flying in flurries in the air. Great colours, too. Happy new year Jean. Elaine.

  2. Perfect Jean - looks just as you have described!
