News from recent exhibitions of my work

Knit and Stitch Show at Alexandra Palace London October 2014

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.Playground1 PlaygroundDetail1 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.

Knit&Stitch Show Olympia March 2013

I was invited to exhibit my large Auricular hangings that I had made especially for a summer art exhibition at Calke Abbey a National Trust property in Derbyshire. The two hangings that are shown here are displayed very differently from each other. Both are initially made from the same type of sheer fabrics and machine embroidered. However the large single flower pot is very soft and flowing and made up of layers of sheer fabrics creating the different colours. The other one with many flower pots is made by taking single flower pots and then each is attached by hand to strong plastic netting giving this a more rigid feel and hang.
