Moth dress

I have had a very overwhelming and exhausting week!! all is OK now but much drama! I wont go into detail but it involved nursing my father after his prostate surgery and my car being written off on his drive!!!!! not what we needed at all. My father is recovering well and the car will be replace but a big week of highs and lows....I only mention it all as an explanation of my absence for the blogging world.

During all this drama I have been creating ( if in a bit of a blur) before I went to Dads I created a little dress, just a basic night dress shape, I wanted to cover it in my map moths as if they were literally eating their way out of the dress and flying off.

The piece evolved all by itself, I really love it but I think it needs development, more moths- the direction of their flight etc.
Im glad everyone seemed to enjoy my interview with Bridget Farmer I will defiantly be doing more interviews, I have a few lined up so watch this space - if anyone has interesting questions they would like to put to the artists do let me know. just in case you didnt know Bridget also interviewed me over on her blog go take a look if you fancy. xx

  3. I think ypu are moving in an interesting direction with the moths, I'm enjoying watching your process.

  4. Hey Jenny, out of all the chaos and drama of the last week or so, comes a wonderful creation. I just love your moths coming out of the dress it's a brilliant idea. Shall pop over to Bridget's blog to read your interview.
