Musings of a New Zealand mixed media & textile artist
I am developing a new class based on the wonderful paintings of Cezanne.We will hand paint fabrics and draw back into them, and then use both hand and machine stitching to enhance the piece and bring it to 'life'. This is an image of the early stage.
I love Cezanne's work and feel that his brush strokes and colour palette will work well for this class.
Warmer days, lots of little insects crawling around and blossom showing. This little beetle brooch is for sale in the gallery shop at the local Suter Art Gallery.I have enjoyed making these. Each one different (little birds,flowers and some koru designs). My originals.
I spent yesterday afternoon with a clever lady who is helping me to freshen up the whole look of my website. It is so clever watching techy people navigate the IT world. Watch out for the new updated look.Coming soon. In the meantime I am posting a photo of a sample from my 2 Day 'Print to Stitch' class. Spend a day creating interesting fabric from your own stamps, stencils and next day make a small art panel with it.
