I’m back on the quilting scene….. Checkout the above link.
Very pleased to have been featured in this month’s edition of All About Horsham magazine. His piece about me has given me some insight into my own work!
I feel like my artwork is at a turning point, but I still don’t know in which direction to go next with it.
Here are some of my latest bag creations. See more on my Etsy shop, called Myvisionshared.
Just sold these two cushions to someone in South Korea. I will miss them but am happy to be selling worldwide from my Etsy shop. It cheers me up for going into our second lockdown…..
Delighted to be showing again in this friendly gallery, which is doing well despite the Covid 19 times we are in. after being in quarantine for two weeks, this outing to hang my work there felt like a real treat.
Here is my latest work, a wall hanging, bed throw, or table runner, using concentric squares design in pastel colours. I’ve made a set of matching table mats to go with it. Enjoyed showing it at Gallery BN5, Henfield, Sussex, and now it is for sale in my Etsy shop.
Just sold the green floral bag above, to someone in Austria. I am always delighted to sell one of my things, but miss them also! I am told it is going to be someone’s Christmas present, so I wish them joy and happy use of it. Hope it doesn’t just go into a drawer of unwanted presents…..
Bags of bags, made by me, and exhibited here at Horsham contemporary art fair.
When we are young we see everything as totally black and white. Parents, nice teachers, best friends are accepted as perfect. When later we find ourselves hurt or disappointed by one of them, we suddenly “see through them”, and see them as totally bad, often writing them off altogether. Maybe years later, we can come to terms with both their good and bad parts, accept them more in the round, seeing them more in terms of shades of grey. Hopefully get back on good terms with them, even if only in memory.
Most of my life I have seen everyone in terms of black or white, baddies or goodies, until about ten years ago, I gradually realised everyone is a mixture. So I’ve been seeing them as fifty shades of grey…. Hopefully that has made me more tolerant of people’s foibles, less judgemental.
However, now, today, I suddenly realise that people aren’t shades of grey, they are many-coloured, filled with every hue and shade of colour. Different moods, different facets of them, different sides to them, different phases in their lives, these are all different colours. Understanding people in colour instead of grey adds vibrancy to my experience of them.
People’s emotions are often described by colours; for example, purple with rage, green with envy, feeling blue, black moods, in the pink, etc etc.
So next time a friend is annoying you, or whatever, think of it in terms of a colour. Bright orange — very irritating. Lime green — interested, enthusiastic. Pink — up for a cuddle. Brown — boring on. Etc etc. Well at least it will make relationships with your friends and family a richer more colourful experience!!!
The above quilt by me, made few years back, is called Rainbow Sunset. But it could be about my new way of seeing life.
