Wise Birds -Wise Words

Just a quick post on some other work I’ve been doing on Wednesdays. Working with Cancer patients and their families, we’ve been knitting and crocheting owls for a few weeks and now they are all roosting on a papier mache branch looking into the treatment area. Each wise bird carries a messenger bag and in each bag are some wise words, written by staff, patients, family or friends. People can take out the words and read them if they wish – or just enjoy this unique collection of ‘rare breeds’ of owls!


We’ll have to do more woolly projects as we got a lot of yarn donations as we were doing this!

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
