I decided I was getting a bit set in my way of working and becoming a bit formulaic!
Time to experiment and take a slightly different direction. More of a development than a radical change but nevertheless a new challenge.
I have worked in mixed media before with varying degrees of success using photography and stitch and also weaving and stitch but this time I am combining paint with stitch.
Stitch is still very much the dominant discipline but in my new pieces, the paint , whilst bringing a new dimension is fully integrated with the stitch.
