Images from a drawing session this morning – we took sections from our ink and bleach drawings and interpreted them with fibres, threads and fabrics using needle felting and machine feltling.
Two of my paintings have been selected for the DESPERATE ARTWIVES exhibition that will take place at the VIBE GALLERY, London SE16 4DG

‘1977’ Oil, laser etch, stitch on canvas
‘Figurine’ Oil, laser etch, screen print, stitch on canvas
This is a piece of work I started a while ago on a workshop. Got round to fully felting it – Image of Elsie lying in a bubble bath. I have just found the original inspiration photo so thought I would add this too! This was my first attempt at this techniques so I am not being too critical of it but it took a long time to do and the nature of felting means you loose a lot of control over the image – it captures a bit of the Elsie I know though.
