friendship The start of a new body of work taken directly from life drawing into my sketchbook. Especially working in a local park and also in cafes etc where people gather to meet and discuss the issues of the day. This activity demands very fast sketches as people walk together chatting and enjoying their companionship, I am very excited by this new and more abstract method of working, and hope to be able to develop these ideas in such a way as to retain the immediacy of the original sketches.
Girls With Attitude this quilt was made for the occasion of my daughters wedding. Evelyn is the bright young girl and i am the dark shadow behind! The image is made to appear to float above the surface of the quilt.
