Getting Ready For My Exhibition


In contrast to the intensive stitching and layering on much of my work,I am enjoying telling some simpler stories...this is a 17th century oak panel with an antique handmade glove.It was inspired by the glove which used to hang on the back of my studio door....and has now found a new home.I love old wood, and this new part of my journey seeks to combine it with the textiles.

Hello Lynn...it is at The Minories in Colchester, and part of the studio & bursary award I was given last year. I should have been told aout it last August/September, but only found out in late January, so all is manic at the moment...I have a whole room to myself, and it still has the original Georgian tall shutters and fireplace....trying to keep calm lol x
