slowly slowly getting back to work.....and a news flash !!!!
moi sewing winnie the pooh elements into an average everyday skirt :)
my vintage dress and scarf hanging up on my balcony shutter last week in Donostia (weep weep....)
**here is my studio before I went on holiday .
Aswell as drawing ,thinking, napping and reading, I also make clothes to sell on my market stall here in my attic studio.
It takes up a lot of my time but it allows me to make art aswell (I like to think they help each other)
I make fairly improbable and quite dressing up style clothing from older pieces and deconstructed vintage trimmings \clothing.
People seem to like them and at the moment I am enjoying making these tippets from felt which I make from boiling old knitwear (hee hee :D it is kind off mad but fun !!)
news flash !!
I am thrilled to announce that I have been offered my first solo show !!
It will take place next year 2011 in the custom house gallery westport co mayo.
I am also in a group show INVITED at this years westport arts festival which takes place in october.
I will show my ongoing work a song for edith which will include a film element (more details to follow)
I spent the day today making c.ds of irish music and trying to write in euskara which is the basque language (you try it ) and spanish to the wonderful people we met in Donostia.
The parcels have gone off in the post now so I can concentrate on finishing my little film (and a few other things too) and remain a little focused.
