Nest - Silver Birch new developments

Nest - Silver Birch
re-claimed yarn hand knitted, re-claimed animal welfare paper, text.

Nest - Silver Birch is the beginnings of a new development with Nest Your Kindness Collections.
The inspiration being  a strip of silver birch I acquired on my journey home from Dumfries & Galloway summer '15.

I was surprised to discover, on the unfurling of the silver bark, that different species of insects were nestled together within the folds of the bark.

This set me questioning were the insects nestled together to take shelter from the insistent Scottish rain?  Or are the different insects happy to make a home together - because they were not to eat each other?

I do love tree bark, especially silver birch, it's gentle strength, healing qualities creatively the subtle colours & paper like quality.

artist book developments - telling the story

the story continues & develops its own visual language.
I print on animal welfare papers to subtly tell their story in snippets, also I love to print on a existing printed surface, this gives an unexpected quality.  I love text as a visual pattern for itself.

Once upon a time, a decade ago, there is a young, old woman who live in the hidden place.
Sing, sing, sing.
The Earth shakes, The Bones unite, The wolf dances. The wolf runs, runs, runs,The souls unite.
They work, They whelp. They rest ant hey rove in circles, time share their work & care.
Sing, sing, sing.
Cast your time & go home.
Behold beauty, Behold grace, Touch the frailty.
Sustain your wonder, your vision, your peace, freedom in the underworld as the overground needs you.
Sing, Sing, sing mountains, sing, sing, sing, forests, sing, sing, sing moon.
Woman spirit go, Wolf spirit go to the lake, unite, be free.
I’ll meet you at the lake, the wolf she, me.

Illuminating Books

Nest Artist Book
LED light box:
finding a way to best present the delicate qualities of the hand felted Nest Books.

Illuminating my artwork has been a quality I have experimented with since my art foundation education (Salford Technical College), when I was making delicate hand made paper & machine embroidery artworks.
