I have just returned from exhibiting at Haanderbejdsbladet. This was a first for me exhibiting internationally. The fair was very much like The Knitting And Stitching Show in England, showcasing artists work alongside textile stands offering sundries for sale.The organisers gave me a super space and the work looked great against the black walls and carpet, although not easy to photograph.

This instillation is based on a 17th Century painting housed at the Wallace Collection. "Flowers On A Fountain With A Peacock" by Jan Weenix. New challenges arose how do I make embroidered peacock feathers and what should I include from the painting. I have also developed a range of jewellery to compliment the painting. This will be on display in the Wallace's shop.
