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.

'One Man's Trash is another Man's Treasure' 2
Majani is Kiswahili for tea leaves. I saved old tea bags and quilted them onto a piece of cotton dyed in strong tea. My husband returned from up country with a goat leg wrapped in gold embossed cellophane. The gold had come off on to the meat. After much trial and error I managed to emboss my tea bags using the same cellophane. Then came the cup and saucer and the tea plant.
