I have been making a few more collages to take with me to Chateau Dumas. I don't usually sell these as they are my most personal work and contain very special materials but I am beginning to let some of them go. Will soon be adding a "limited edition" section to my Etsy shop.

Serendipity

These two very different pieces of old textiles have fallen next to each other on my desk today. My work is often guided by this type of serendipity. Hopefully I will be able to combine into something more resolved when I get back from France

Pages

A bundle of stuff gathered to make a book cover and the pages have already been collaged . I have used an antique French towel for the pages and the collages are patchworker together from little pieces of unpicked quilts. It will be finished in France in front of my students on the Chateau Dumas summer school. Hope to find some other french towels over there to make a few more pages.

Pink Flowers

 I have written a piece for TextileArtist.org about  exactly how I made this piece  including what inspired the work, the research phase, how and why I selected specific materials, the equipment I used and the stage-by-stage process of actually creating the piece. read about it HERE

Many of you ask me for online tutorials and this is the closest it will get I am afraid!
