This year I am determined to make more artwork for my walls. I would also like to work towards having a large enough body of work to have an exhibition sometime in the near future.
I do love my 'job' of making womens clothes, accessories etc.
But really my heart lies in textile art, paint, print and stitch.
I do get to be expressive and creative with the designs on the clothing, but I am aching to paint on canvas, get back to my machine embroidery and play around with mixed media again.
These are some old canvases a friend gave me and I have been experimenting with layering screen printed images and washes of colour.
There was already colour on these when I received them so it was nice not to start with a white canvas.
I also like that the finished piece contains the work of two artists, two friends :)
