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.

Old Amsterdam is inspired by a 1593 map of Amsterdam. The title has two meanings as Old Amsterdam is also a cheese with a rich flavor. The cutting out of the many canals was a fiddly task, I used an interfacing as this would not fray. Ink was added to give it some color and lots of stitching to represent the buildings. The blue and green fabrics are my own hand dyed ones.
