A walk at dusk, a rustle in the undergrowth and a bright, curious eye watching you watching. Both stand still, the world is quiet, a paw shifts, a nose sniffs, an ear twitches, and he turns and vanishes amongst the leaves. You let out your breath. the connection you made lifts you, gives you a sense of being part of nature, not just on it, and you continue on your way, with eyes a little more open.


This piece of textile art is created by layering up many small pieces of fabric to create interesting effects and textures. These are stuck in place and then sewed over using my sewing machine. I use a technique called free motion stitching where I draw with the threads, and in this case, as I draw with threads over the little pieces of fabric the edges ruffle and become frayed creating beautiful textures and effects. I use the fabrics as you would use paint, each little piece is like a brushstroke, another piece of the whole work. All the fabrics I use are offcuts and unwanted bits and pieces that are too small for other creative people to use, so they donate them to me!
