"What wound did ever heal but by degrees?"
External internal landscapes - mapping emotional & physical journeys, intimate, emotive, private.
Adding stitch to my dry point prints - repairing, patching faults,noticing the scratches, scars and wounds.
Suture - a stitch or row of stitches holding together the edges of a wound

Whenever I need to clear my mind I take a good walk with my camera. Inspiration is all around us, we just need to view things with a fresh eye. It's quite wet here now which is encouraging all kinds of moss & fungi - if I were a knitwear designer I would definitely be using these to inspire my next collection
The textures are wonderful & it's got me thinking about wrapping threads around sticks.
I found them in a secret place, a dense, damp grotto...
...which eventually led to this magical view
where dragonflies danced around lily pads
and grass snakes scurried along the path
Definitely a fairy story in there somewhere!
