New work!

Hello! Yes, it's been ages. The silly season has taken over here. There are many new 
projects on the go, but as yet none have been finished. Just so you know I am still on the job 
I thought I'd post a new work – still very much a work in progress – called Urban Planning.

This is a very personal project for me. I started with some painting and over-printing, playing 
with making marks. Then I over-printed a map of where we used to live in London and began 
sewing a random hexagon grid pattern as the next layer.

From there the layers of fabric, silk and lace have been steadily building up. I'm trying not to 
plan this part too slavishly... I want it to be the chaotic growth of a city that happens no matter 
how assiduously one plans its grid ;)

Anyway, still a work in progress. Here's to one day actually finishing! ;)


  1. I love this concept and how it's unfolding! x

  2. what a vivid imagination, love your style

  3. Amazing, can't wait to see it finished.... One day!

  4. Looks fantastic so far, can't wait to see the finished result!

  5. I'm a bit late in commenting, but this is fantastic! I love the story behind it, and all those layers is adding delicious texture!

    1. Thanks so much Gretchen :) It's currently sitting idle while I try and work out what it needs to be 'finished' but hopefully it'll get there soon ;) Kx
