Flattered to be featured in this week’s A View with a Room, where home decor and design is curated around the palette and aesthetic of one artwork. Such a lovely idea- please check out Natalie’s website for more home inspiration! (This original sewn collage on felt “Living East” is for sale, PM me for the deets)
During the month of June, I completed a residency at the Spinning Museum in the town of Langogne, in the southern region of Lozère, France. During this time, I experimented using wool – coming straight from the carding machine in the museum – as a primary material in my collages.
Recently, I’ve been working on a new project creating collaged versions of drawings by 2-6 year olds. While cutting and sewing, I’ve been considering memories made from these first years of our lives, as well as the factors that may influence what is lost and kept.
This series, “Little Small,” will be on exhibit at Maebashi Works Gallery, in Gunma Japan, from March 10th – 21st. Hope you can make it!
Some of my work is currently up at John Hill Estate and Vineyard in Hunua – just outside Auckland – New Zealand. If you’re in the area, stop in for a peek and a glass of sauv blanc!
My collage (“and the whole world grew a forest for her”) was recently published in Collage Collective Co’s new book, “Green,” which you can purchase here : http://www.collagecollective.co/green
Included beneath the collage is this caption:
“I made this piece for my friend, Megan, who I associate a lot with the colour green. She had a dog named ‘Green’ and she always wore green coloured beads. The title is from an old book of poetry I was browsing through, an ended up writing in a birthday card for her one year. The idea of all these strangers collectively growing a forest for someone was so absurd and beautiful that I had to make a collage about it – a gift of leaves, lichen, and blurs of trees.”
