‘I work with natural fibres such as lambs wool, silk, yak and alpaca to create a colourful range of machine and hand knitted accessories such as large wrap around shawls, embroidered hand warmers and tea cosies. The patterns and colours of my work have a nostalgic and domestic narrative which draw influences from Eastern European national costumes, Bohemia, craft and artists such as Matisse and Vanessa Bell.
I just got my Living etc...magazine, one of my most enjoyable experiences, going through the pages with my coffee, in my white sofa in my comfortable living room!!.
Here are some pics from last weekend's visit to sunny Peckham for the boyf's birthday...Ella looks like she's had enough posing for pics in the first one! sorry Marga, haha...!
What a great idea FINDES is, based in LA and shipping worldwide there is not excuse to stop at their very well designed website and search for unique objects, the followings are a small selection of my favorites 'fyndes'.

Tagging Tate 2007, Tate Britain, London
A two-day exploration of sugar, slogans and tagging. Participants in these workshops were given an opportunity to debate themes around the 1807–2007 commemoration of the Act abolishing slavery and look at the politically-charged work of Mark Wallinger. To conclude the workshops, the walls of the Duveen galleries and entrance to Tate Britain were tagged using sugar as a medium.
