In the last week the 15 new textiles I designed have arrived. I've been excitedly making them up...

"Raspberry Leopard" 150 cm wide stretch knit

The Murrurundi Art Show is opening this Friday night at 6.30pm at the RSL Hall so the stalwarts of the Arts Council have been a flurry of activity setting this up. Heres pictures of my entries. I have 2 garments entered in the Fibres/Textiles section and this is the coat.

I also entered the Portrait/Figurative section with this digital image called "Anna May, after the 1920s actress Anna May Wong. I used an out of copyright b/w image of her as the basis of the manipulation. I've used this same image at larger than life size as a fabric print fact... I won the Fibres/Textiles section last year with a garment made printed with this picture with the figure in a longer format.
