Words and Pictures
I really enjoyed creating these illustrations of architectural elements of the Pelican Housing Estate for Big Family Press. The A3 sheet of drawings will be used as a resource in risograph workshops with Oliver Goldsmith Primary School at South London Gallery.
Thanks to everyone who came down to the snack themed embroidery workshop today, a very talented bunch stitching chips, cakes, sushi, gherkins, party rings, doughnuts, cherry macaroons and wine!
Had a great time looking around Brum Zine Fest 2019 and picked up a few goodies before heading home. Thanks to Shaheen Kasmani and Louise Byng for getting me involved!
I'm going to be at Brum Zine Fest 2019 on Saturday 6th July! I'll be doing a embroidery workshop on the theme of favourite snacks from 1.15pm to 2.30pm, a pot luck lunch. Check out their website to RSVP, see the all the events during the day and get the details!
Kate Davies of KKD & co spoke to me for her new series of 'chain reaction' interview, talking to female creatives about their practice. I talk about how I got into embroidery, my process and inspirations and nominated the wonderful Catherine Mountford as the next link! You can find the interview here. Thanks so much to Kate for interviewing me!
I've just added my Edible Flower riso print to my Etsy shop. A4 yellow and green inks on pastel green 160gsm card. Edition of 10, all signed and numbered and signed for delivery in the UK. This was made for a zine that didn't happen, so it's good to see it in print.
Italian Food risograph print with pizza, cannoli, ice cream, spaghetti and a Aperol Spritz. Teal on pink 160gsm card, signed edition of 10 available to buy from my Etsy shop.
I've been working on a collaboration with All The Queens Houses over the past few weeks. Rafael approached me to convert one of his photographs into a cross stitch. I selected 'Eclectic Row', Jamaica Hills, Queens because I loved the different brickwork and the contrast of the yellow and pinks against the variety of reds.
I'll be returning to Bootle Library with Our Human Library for Stitch Club on Friday 16th November, 11am~1pm. Looking forward to seeing all the emrbroiderers and progressing with embroidery and collaborative embroidery ideas.
I've made my Christmas card this year and just posted it on my Etsy to buy. I cross~stitched four Christmas crackers onto aida fabric and had them printed on A6 sized card. You can buy a set of four with envelopes for £8 here.
