A Wander of Wonder - Exhibition and New Book!
I haven't updated this blog for far too long, 2020 has been such an odd year from going so slowly it's like wading through treacle to spinning by so fast you forget to blink. I was working on completing my book and exhibition at the end of the summer which culminated in the show at Circle Space in September. Thanks so much to all those who came!
I illustrated the book in response to a poem I had written some time ago about the need to be and to see, to move and to make. You don't need to move far to build yourself a different perspective. I also made some of the creatures from the books and illustrations as textile pieces, dancing mushroom dresses and woodland animals merged with their forest funghi. The concertina books (below) were limited edition at 50 and sold out at the show. I loved hand making these and using fabrics I'd collected in Japan for the enclosures so they were well travelled little books!
