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.

Voyage Number Six. Bits and Bobs.

For this piece I went back into my collection of fabrics and embellishments from Africa. Loving Rome but missing Africa. We are also making preparations for Graham's retirement, buying a house in Yorkshire! Traveling for 3 weeks to visit friends and our eldest daughter in Zimbabwe and Johannesbrg over the holidays. Making plans, arranging visits from friends for next year (we seem to almost run a bed and breakfast!) With so much going on I enjoyed working with my bits and bobs quietly, in my space for a while. Bark cloth, cotton fabrics and banana leaf covered wires. Mostly hand stitched.

  1. I have never seen bark cloth, I imagine it is the brown fabric? Made from which trees? A most unusual piece, Alison and I love all the additional embellishments! Yorkshire will certainly be different!
