New Year, New Project

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.


About Jill An artist inspired by nature in all her glorious guises and the ‘inner’ worlds I have inhabited in the past, present and future; also those of other wanderers I meet along the way.
