Indian Inspiration.

I developed a large sketchbook and collection inspired by visits to India, colours, art, culture and traditions. Exploring  many forms of media but especially printed and embroidered textiles. These then developed into richly detailed textile artworks using many of my collected treasures.

I had collected a lot of inspiration and artifacts and included them in these collage type works about the wedding.

I went to India, Jaipur in December 2013. Where I had an extraordinary holiday learning wood block printing, sharing techniques, inspiration, site seeing and shopping. See my India Sketchbook HERE

My Indian Elephant inspired by the ones we saw in Jaipur. It was fussy cut from 1960’s fabric and adored with glitter.
