Lesley and I so much enjoyed the collaboration process we decide to do it again…though this time on a smaller scale!
Two years in the making and two shows later here are some of the moments of our journey. Lesley and I will be showing Colour: A Personal Response this year at other venues and will keep you posted.
I have always loved the intensity of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, the subjects he chooses, his thick brushstrokes and his use of colour. Born in Zundert, in the south of the Netherlands on the 30th March 1853, his tragic life was often misunderstood and he was seen by many as a mad man. However, he had a close relationship with his brother Theo.
Welcome to my blog — a place where I share my inspiration and process for my textile art. Working on the last in the series of 12 this one was titled “O’Keeffe in Purple.” Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s close up of flowers I chose an orchid. It has so many lovely curves and movement and looks like a bird when you look at it closely. Georgia O’Keeffe stated “Nobody sees a flower—really—it is so small it takes time—we haven’t time—and to see takes time.”
