Theme: Trees

I will be in residence at Unit 1 Layby Farm, Old Risborough Road, Stoke Mandeville, HP22 5XJ from 11th – 23rd October.

I will be working to the theme of TREES and making work from the photographs that I took as I walked the Outer Aylesbury Ring. I am interested in the many details to be found within trees. I like to draw tree bark, lichen, scars and snags on the bark, decaying matter and anything that gives me texture and the patina of decay and ageing. Drawings in the first instance will be translated into stitching. I intend to work mainly by hand but depending on how the work develops, I may decide to add machine stitching.

The residency will end with a workshop 0n Saturday 23rd October that will explore close observation of the marks left by the passing of time, of growth and weathered details on the surfaces of trees. the act of looking, considering and recording the infinite variety of detail will result in intensely worked surfaces on paper and fabric.

Do come and visit.
