portrait brooch - embroidery
Last week I offered my first selection of portrait embroidery pieces - and am happy to be continuing on with offering a modest choice of stitches most weeks..... Stitched using my sewing machine as a drawing tool, these intricate and miniature works fascinate me as they come to life. They are worked in an improvised way, meaning I am never sure who I may meet as the stitches appear....
Meanwhile, paintings.... I'm exploring both still life and abstract ideas, and there's of course a lot of cross-pollination. Certainly my fascination for botanical shapes will always be in my work somewhere, in stitch motif or abstracted shape in paint....

These works - and others - will be in my shop tomorrow (2pm UK time).
