I have a joint exhibition ‘Folk Threads’ with Kate Fenton at The Golden Ball which opens on Saturday 23rd May and runs until 24th July. Come along and see what you think – view the exhibition in the Garden Room when the pub is open! A lot of my pieces have been inspired by Russian and Eastern European folk art; I also have a number of Japanese inspired pieces.

I’ve been working on a piece inspired by Japanese boro textiles. Using recycled fabrics and threads, I’ve rusted them first and then dyed them in indigo. I’ve then stitched into the marks and stains using a variety of threads.
This is part of the new exhibition by the Open Art Collective entitled ‘Continuum’ at the Golden Ball pub in York – the Preview is this evening.

Last Thursday there was a Preview of an exhibition by the Open Art Surgery collective. This is a group of local artists – of which I’m one – and we responded to the theme of ‘Your Place in Space’. The exhibition is in the Garden Room at the Golden Ball pub in Bishophill, York and runs for 6 weeks www.goldenballyork.co.uk
I have one piece in the exhibition entitled ‘Enclosure’ which is inspired by nests and hibernation. This was a new venture for me to try and create a 3D piece in a box frame using recycled fabric, paper and thread.
