National Embroidery Exhibition 2018
July - September 2018, The Suter Gallery, Nelson.
The Clio Independent Artist Fair
October 11th - 14th, New York City, New York.
An exhibition to honour the illustrious Japanese elderly woman who is fabulous, fierce and larger than life.
After spending five years in Japan and being an avid collector of their clothes and accessories she wanted to create works that stayed true to their aesthetic. Pattern, clashing colour, gestural line and the use of dynamic mixed-media collage are used to help these women leap right off the wall and into your heart.
