Stepping back to move forward....

For my upcoming exhibtion I have been really uninspired, so I want to develop on one of my favourite projects from univeristy.

I want to further develop the use of used paper and my mark marking and stitch style.

Mastered CS4......eventually!

For the final little bits of forget me knot I wanted to do some visualisations to show how it would work in both an interiors setting as well as an art setting......I was a little chuffed as I have a SERIOUS photoshop phobia!!

Forget Me Knot

The space is up, only a scatter brain like me could make an attic space in the studio!!

It's been a while!!

I do apologise, things have been a little hectic of late!! Here are a couple of my in-situ photographs taken at Green Park Station Antiques, thank you to the lovely man who owns it!!

Found these in the flower shop by the Wine Vaults, perfect use for over sized tea cups

Development on the ol' tea cups, bringing together rose necklace, bows and the teacups


I got a slight addiction to sewing tea cups, even tho i dont drink tea! Teacups are my ultimate favourite thing!
