Seasons Greetings

I hope all have had an agreeable festive season, a Merry Christmas and a good start to the New Year!
Below is this years Christmas Card design, more may be sent out electronically this year as I have been held up getting Christmas creative projects off the ground!

I had a fabulous Christmas with friends and family. One of my favorite presents was this paintbrush necklace made by Zinkwhite. See their website for other interesting up-cycled wearables and decorative objects.

I started the year creatively with a visit to the 'Lost in Lace' Exhibition at Birmingham Art Gallery. The exhibition explores 'new' notions of lace, its physical composition of thread and negative spaces, it's social associations and the way line and aperture together describe space. One of the most striking works in the exhibition was the translucent wall of silicone 'tiles' by Ai Matsumoto, see link below.

I am off to experiment further with devore on denim, the results of the first round of tests resulted in two exciting 'canvases', pictures to follow shortly.
