Just catching up

Not really managed to get into the routine of blogging yet so here’s a brief catch-up on my work so far.
Back in September I started at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee on the MFA Art Society and Publics course.  Not having a great deal of formal art education I was not sure what to expect but what I’ve found is the freedom to develop my work in the way I want to go.

I mainly work in textiles including weaving, embroidery and crochet.

This is a piece I made a few years ago just because I loved the serenity of the swan in the original photo.  It is made using hand dyed and also commercially printed cotton, free machine embroidery and a variety of other techniques.

I don’t think I’m going to get much chance to produce many more of this sort of thing this year.
