2014 Review

2014 has been a busy year with the highlight being the Open Studios in May, where I had to say goodbye to some of my favourite paintings.  Of course, I am happy to see them go off to new homes and I hope they are being enjoyed as much as I enjoyed making them.

Being creative is very intense and early on in the year I was looking for something to exercise the analytical side of my brain.  I have been involved with textile work for many years and am particularly interested in the history of textiles. While researching ecclesiastical weaving, my interest was piqued by some tablet woven bands and I undertook to learn this fascinating and ancient art. 

My blogging has taken a back seat and take a step back from exhibiting while I spend some time building up a new body of work.  I am also experimenting with mixed media on the theme of "boundaries" and will post about that over the next month.
