Isn't this beautiful?  Would love to try and produce some short films.

Stitches & Scars

"What wound did ever heal but by degrees?"  

William Shakespeare

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

External internal landscapes - mapping emotional & physical journeys, intimate, emotive, private.

Taking my camera for a walk

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!
