A New Year Of Stitching
The need to be creative is always there, in part, it is the desire of trying out new threads and materials in my art work.
I can't stop at the drawing or painting there is always the need to express it with the complexities of surface texture, for the fabric to take on the energy of my landscapes.
For 2012 the plan is to continue developing the larger pieces, although they take considrable time and energy, combining them with the smaller collectable works which I will occasionaly add to etsy (some added today).
Next week I have the first of two workshops I will be running at The Herbert Art Galley and I'm hoping that I may be able to run more in the future.
I have been featured this week in the online art magazine Art Daily and my local newspaper The Kenilworth Weekly News .
I also want to thank Lorrie of Illusio Creative who has kindly included me in her blog post "I must go down to the Sea"
The combination of fine art and craft is growing across many different fields, this was apparent at The Birmingham Musesum's Exhibition "Lost In Lace".
What a fantastic, exqusite, thought provoking exhibition, do go if you can, you can view images on Birmingham Museums flickr page here including many paintings from the gallery.
Wishing you a very Happy Creative New Year!
