working on this new bedspread in natural Shetland wool…
One of the loveliest things to do when you can’t sleep, is sketch. Sketching helps everything.
I’m developing a new Shakespeare festival in association with The Cut Art’s centre in Halesworth, Suffolk. We’re calling it SHAKE! Here’s some of my artwork for it…”Alas Poor Yorick”, from a vintage book illustration. More details soon…

Work in progress…I’m using a lovely heavy linen unbleached yarn which is somehow delicious to handle. I’m copying this Greek stitch (without a pattern), which was inspired by the Mesopotamian river Meander. Often seen on architraving and friezes, it’s an ancient pattern which symbolises eternal life.
I started painting again on iPad about a week ago
