Ragged and Black

Ragged and Black

135cm x 176cm

Ragged and Black is a lyric from a Joni Mitchell song. I like to work with a title right from the start when I’m making a quilt and these words seemed to fit my crow character perfectly. The original image was a painting I made using gouache and Indian ink on watercolour paper. The image was scanned and digitally printed on a wide format printer at the Fingerprint studio. I free motion quilted the printed, wholecloth image and added detail with fabric painting and digitally embroidered text.

All the Birds

All the Birds

82cm x 138cm

My daughter Laura and I worked on this piece together. The birds are some of my hand painted watercolours – Laura has carefully arranged them on the branches of a magnificent old tree photographed in her garden. The assembled elements were digitally printed onto cotton fabric and then free motion quilted. The text you can see in the spaces between the branches is a phrase from a Neil Young song, “There you stood on the edge of a feather, expecting to fly.”.

Flock

Flock

222cm x 193cm

This is a piece that my daughter Laura and I made together. We used hand dyed cotton and linen fabrics pieced in sections, free motion quilted, bound and then only partially connected. We wanted to create a sense of the chaotic movement you experience when a flock of birds is disturbed and soars noisily to the sky. The birds are appliquéd and stencilled with added pastel and paint detail.
