All this work (and much much more!) will be on show at the Knit and Stitch Show at Alexandra Palace from next Wed 8th Oct until Sunday 12th Oct, and later on in the year in Dublin and Harrogate.
Image of a machine embroidery called ‘Playground’. This work is over a metre wide and 75 c.m in length. It is my most ambitious piece to date. It hangs away from the wall and so you see enlarged images of the children on a plain wall. Detail view
Row of Children is based on the playground and will hopefully give people the idea of a type of ‘PICK and MIX’ approach where the buyer can choose up to 4 images from the ‘Playground’ to put in a frame for themselves.
A picture of Agnes entitled the ‘Matriarch’ This image is about 1.50 metres in length, it hangs away from the wall so that when strong light is shone on it the shadow becomes part of the piece of artwork. It hangs with another image of a Ugandan women of the same size.
