Bark Inspired Embellishment

This morning I have been putting the first layers of
embellished fabrics on an artwork 'to be'.
This is based on bark and will eventually incorporate
real bark too! I made a small sample on Monday.
This piece is 10" by 22".
See more of my embellishments
on my portfollio pages on my website

Swaffham Caterpilar Art Session

I was at Swaffham Community Centre on Wednesday morning.
The centre is really modern and light with lots of facilities available.
This was a Caterpilla Art Board Session with a small group.
They all made their Caterpilla's and most enjoyed it but
as I found out not everyone enjoys a focussed art session
Caterpilla's or completing a project!
The first one in over 200 Caterpilla's made throughout
See the Caterpilla Board on my website

Monday Embellished Sample

I am exploring the techniques I can mix with the
embellished materials,
ready to present a new body of work based upon 'Nature'.
This sample is inspired by tree bark.
I have used alot of recyled silk scarves.
