I have been taking inspiration from some photographs I took in Lanzarote and the wonderful colours and textures of the volcanic landscape.
After some time spent working in my sketchbook and trying out different ideas this was the first piece I created. There are areas created with tissue paper, sand, torn card, there are small Ares highlighted in gold.
This is another piece with the addition of an area of modroc to create more defined texture through the central area.
This piece is quite small (20cm x 20cm)and has an area of needle felting running through it enhanced with machine embroidery, hand embroidery and tiny beads.
And finally, for the moment, a slightly larger piece with an irregular shaped area of needle felt and embroidery running through the central section (shown in the bottom photograph)
