Accidentally On Purpose

Struggling to provide explanations, these things just sort of happened, small worlds full of blackened houses, windmills, church yards and toxic waste. Perhaps as Anne Elliot once advised Captain Benwick, a larger allowance of prose is in order.

Nobody Cares

I first read this short poem by Emily Dickinson in a high school literature class and it just stayed with me.  Particularly now in the age of social media madness I often think about it.  I'm a very private person however having worked in the commercial world for many years I do understand the need for marketing your work.  It's a push pull conflict.  Even now this series which I call Nobody Cares is buried in my Projects page which somewhat ironically nobody will look at.

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

Cushion Project

Turning my digital artwork into practical everyday items mostly just to see if I could do it.  The collection is available from my Etsy CUSHION SHOP and can be produced in multiples to order.  

The designs combine elements produced through a process of digital manipulation of my own original photographs.








DOTTY FOR YOU knicker sewing kits also available.
