I’ve been busy lately making fabric butterflies and moths for an upcoming MAC workshop.

I’m loving the variety of work that teaching Textiles opens up.

I have loads of photo reference from my trip here last year which has come in really handy.

I love it when you follow your heart’s inspiration only to find things come together at a later date.

I couldn’t have known back then how useful the trip to the Oxford Natural History Museum would be and I guess that’s why artist play dates are so important (explanation here)

And it’s interesting for me to see the marriage of painting and textiles coming about too on this project.
