New work

I am about to start developing some new ideas and introduce some new techniques to my work thanks to the award of a Visual Arts and Crafts grant from Fife Council. The plan is to develop new ideas for pattern and recreate them on aluminium also laser cut paper and acrylic. The pattern influence will be nostalgic and personal  and I am going to enjoy delving into my collection of vintage fabrics, ceramics, magasine cuttings and familty photographs for inspiration! Particularily excited about the crocheted blankets in my family caravan , my mum's 70s coffee set and her 50s fabric knitting basket!
Here is a little sample of aluminum tests I did last week.
