An extremely belated new year posting. I hope this year has begun in the way you each wished for.
I have been very quiet – well, silent here, but I have been creating. Back in November I embarked on a new project, a call from the Wild Mother – Baba Yaga (one of Her many guises) it was who summonsed me to the Land of Dreaming. Initially I thought this would be a written and illustrated journey, however, shortly after starting it became very clear how I wanted to visualise and interpret this. My chosen method is a story cloth – a quilt if you like, but not a traditional one. As my thinking process progressed it became clear to me that I wanted to journal/log each step of the way, so I have set up a blog specifically for this piece of work. The background, the thinking process, the making of the cloth itself and the beginnings of the journey are all being logged at: The Land of Dreaming.
I would be glad if you would join me there as I proceed.
I will continue to post work from other projects here, but have a feeling they will be few and far between – I am so engrossed in this and want to see if I can really focus charting each step of the way, right up until completion.
