A World Within

I thought it was about time I added a few items to etsy, I will be listing small items but also a couple of limited edition prints of paintings, which I had on show at The Herbert Art Gallery.
The originals I am hanging onto for my touring exhibition sometime next year.
Last week I did a talk for a group of textile artists which was very interesting and it's not long until my workshops at Compton Verney, so plenty to keep me busy!

The trees here are the most vivid colours, reds, yellows and golds, there is a sharpe nip in the air, a move towards Winter.
The leaves have started to tumble creating the most beautiful rich coloured carpets.
Time to work in the sketch book again.

A Story Within My Stitches

Another piece of work I finished a few months back.
The landscape is a place of stories, this is from my childhood.
I'm hoping to add a few small items to Etsy soon, I just need to finish another larger work which I will display at the NEC in March.

Working on a larger Autumn Tondo, see the smaller art work on the bottom right to see the scale. I have a life time of stitching a head! Just a few more stitches and it will be finished.
