My Dear Life

Secret Life of Ely Cathedral:  our exhibition is entering it's final week.  Come along and have a look if you are in the area.  It's been really popular- we've had some great feedback.  This is not specifically a textiles show - it's a mix of paintings, sculpture, book arts, installation, photography and of course some textiles.

Here is one of my other printed pieces in the show.  It's based on a  love letter that was found in the ceiling of the Almonary from a young clockmaker's apprentice to a Miss Peacock of Ely. A handpainted playing card with 2 hearts was found with the letter. It is beautifully written, both in it's language and in the handwriting. It begins: 

" My Dear Life,.........."
