Working hard

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Well at the moment it’s a real pleasure just to sit and sew, paint, draw, use stencils, modeling paste, cut, rip and all the other pleasurable stuff that comes with creating. When I was working as a nurse in England, especially on the Paediatric unit, there were some really bad days; to unwind when I got home was to make fabric paper, sheets and sheets of it. After about ten sheets I felt fine and could then deal with family life. So now it’s a pleasure to have the freedom to just go and create whenever I feel like it, although I must admit I sometimes need that pressure to make me work. I can’t tell you the amount of times I have gone into my studio to tidy up and hopefully re-organize and have then spotted a splash of fabric, paper or paint and then that’s the end of all my good intentions !

People have written to me to ask if I’m still creating as they don’t see much of me around, well of course I am and hope to show you more. When I work I always have a few pieces going at the same time. As well as more of the above I’m finishing off a fabric and paper book which also contains everything else in my repertoire. Hopefully my next course of action will be some on-line classes, eventually.
