Our Exhibition Opens 9th November!

I should be busy working on my pieces for Dimensions but am recovering from having 3 teeth out yesterday. I’ll have to get back to work soon – still have lots to do. At our last meeting some great work appeared for the exhibition so I’m sure it will be worth a visit. On Friday, […]

Last week…

The above piece was done with heat transfer dyes on a bright yellow polyester, linen look fabric. Not my usual colours but I really like it. I also painted lots of other papers to transfer later.
