Feeling the Way

map

Recently I have been experimenting with textiles and maps. In the past I did a lot of mapping using paper, and am enjoying transferring that into more tactile media. There is something very touching about embroidering the boundaries of place that embodies a new kind of awareness.

This little map of Mull is made from a scrap of fabric that someone very dear gave me from Singapore, appliquéd onto a bit of my old painting jeans. As I made it I felt I was becoming more aware of my present location, whilst weaving memories into a new time and place.
