new artist books & shop update
I've been so very busy..... despite the snowy weather (we have a lot of snow out there right now!).... Making books has fascinated me, many years and many styles.....ever since I was at primary school and my friends and I made our very own photocopied comic, complete with crosswords.....
These artist books, concertina folding style, are a way for me to showcase my ideas, the obsessions that make my work, my work...... I combine stitch with monoprint drawing, paper from old novels, snippets of fabric etc....
Both these books are in my shop update today. I shall be launching quite soon.
I'm planning to create several other books, in the future. But for now I begin this year with the two here. I'm also including in my shop today several other mixed media pieces and six yesterdays dolls. I had suggested chairs might feature but they are time consuming and I want to take my time to make a few more. So they shall be in next month's update.
As we have a lot of snow, there may be a slight delay in packages arrival. I can walk to the post box on a main road, a short way from here, no problem. So long as the main roads stay connected, which they are, there should not be a problem.
I hope your week is going well, more soon x
