2010 154cm x 76cm I consider that this is my first “art quilt”. Half potted family tree and half family anecdotes from my childhood written in free machine embroidery onto strips of recycled ticking surrounded by photographs of family and representations of people in my life. Pieces of broken up jewellery, sewing paraphernalia and fishing flies were added and acid etching was used to make the empty photograph frames that are waiting to be filled by images of people I had yet to meet. And the tarot? One card for each of the important people in my life.
