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.

No need to cook
No need to cook - May 2014
The strawberry season is in full flow here in the south of France. The locally favoured and grown variety is the Gariguette, known for being smallish and full of sweet flavour.
I printed some cotton fabric in the colours I wanted, using my Gelli plate. Some of this fabric I used in the two sided border. The background was quilted with the words “gariguettes” and “fraises” (strawberries) and the large strawberry was fused before adding quilting and hand embroidery. The small strawberries were fused and machine quilted.
We have a punnet of Gariguettes waiting in the kitchen for tonight's dessert!
