Seeing the sparse drawings that David Nash has made of the bare bones of cork trees sent me looking through old watercolour sketches. I've always been interested in the shapes between the branches, the negative spaces, from Majorca to Malham via Nettlecombe.
A Conservation Biotechnologist by profession, in my 'playtime' I create art textiles inspired by the natural world. I am currently exploring ways of interpreting sketches directly onto fabric. Besides printing paintings and photos onto fabric using the computer, I am constructing densely quilted pieces overpainted with acrylic paint.
