Finding Your Thread: Barnabus

Recycled fabric, thread

Stitching, applique mounted on canvas. – A homage to the can-do attitude of my parents and the encouragement given to their daughters to live and grow creatively. Barnabus features the Liberty fabric purchased by my mother in the 1970’s for curtains that hung in our Birmingham living room for 30 years. When she emigrated, the material came with her, and we distributed it amongst us. Other fabrics included come from family garments in my possession, including the suit my father wore to my wedding. Their support and practicality on all things made me who I am; sometimes apprehensive of a challenge but knowing that I will find that thread.
