Off Beat

I delivered this piece of work to Cork on Saturday and attended the Cork Textiles Network AGM.  An exciting conference is being planned for March 2013 with some great tutors coming along - keep an eye on their website for more info - definitely worth a visit. 

This work was made for the Feel the Beat exhibition which will take place at the Cork School of Music in December.

New Beginings

This work was inspired by the Monarch Butterfly - it has the most beautiful rich dark colours of orange, black and white.  I wanted to demonstrate how the butterfly with its wings emerging from a cocoon represents a new begining - a new start in life.
