I have been getting up very early most morning to get these exihibition pieces finished.

This is the fourth one out of five. Its pretty much finished.

My theme for the exhibition is 'birds' , but I guess the birds are symbolic of this artistic journey I have been on in the last few years and the confidence I have gained.

The area shown in the map is a small section of Brunswick and I have indicated the pathway of my life in this area through stitch.

I Lived in union st when I first left home at seventeen and now have ended up back there , at olive grove.

This piece, a section of map, printed onto fabric as the base layer.

Then I have machine embroidered over the top. I have then screen printed flying birds onto very fine silk and machine embroidered many of the birds.

Think its almost finished x
