Find Yourself


Well folks, it seems like a while since I've posted anything but its not that long really. I've been busy creating lots of things but not really finishing off anything. Here is a piece I started a month ago and only finsihed it last week. I love this piece, probably because of its distressed look.


Who is the little girl and why is she trying to be invisible? Why doesn't she release herself from that little cage and be free? What or who is she hiding from? Does she hope to free herself in the future?...................


I love making these little cages, they are tricky, I did try to distress the wires over the gas stove but some melted lol. Cant remember if they landed in with the spaghetti lol. (I'm kidding)

I just finished reading Adele by Emma Tennant, and for me this would be an excellent illustration for the book. Mysterious and poetic.

Beautiful. I took a textile course at an Driaocht in Blachardstown that did similar things. Not nearly as beautiful, but they're developing a new extended course for the future.
