December has gone off the scale, crazy. Somehow I have managed to make 9 sets of Matryoshka dolls in the space of a week. I can't share them with you just yet for fear of spoiling someones surprise, but I can show you this one from last year. If you would like a set making then drop me a message.
Over the past month or so, myself and the wonderful Emily Garcés have been working with the local community in Allenton and Shelton Lock to gather inspiration for this giant mural that we are now creating for St Edmunds Church, based on the idea of community and individuality within community.
Over the course of the project, we have kept a loose template in mind that combines cell like patterns and flowing narrative. It's nice to see the finished piece growing as organically as the project itself has done over time.
I am so glad that I was given Emily to work with, we have bounced off each other in a really great way, (the fact that we are both bonkers helps) And I think you can already see both of of our styles within the work.
Watch this space for the final results!
