My Sketch Book and Threads

This is the sketch book I took to Italy with me, it's filled with sketches of the mountains, which I hope to share over the next few weeks.
I had this on display at The Herbert Art Gallery with a few other smaller works and threads.
It is a constant source of inspiration, I will use these for my next paintings, developing along side my stitched textile works, plenty of work to keep me busy this half term week.

I'm pleased to announce that I will be demonstrating my work at the NEC in Birmingham Fashion ,Embroidery, Stitch show at the end of March on the Madeira Threads stand.
So if your planning to come please do pop over and say hello, as this is the first time I have participated in a textile show.
Once I get more information I will post it here.
Have a great week.

A wonderful sketchbook - I'm looking forward to seeing more from it.
Good that you will be at NEC show so that so many people can enjoy your work and be inspired - I'd love to be there to meet you.

Congratulations on the obvious success of the exhibition and the workshops. I love the picture of your paintings with the threads by it. It makes me want to do more drawing. I hope you have decided what to do. Its a really exciting point in your life.
