The 'Kindling' wall hanging is a celebration of twigs and all their beauty!
"The idea was inspired by watching my little boy collecting sticks anywhere he could find them, he saw beauty in them that no one else could see. So then I started to collect them and really look at how unique and beautiful each twig was, thus 'Kindling' was born. Whilst collecting them, I came up with what the design would look like - in terms of each twig being horizontal and stand alone."
The sticks featured in the 'Kindling' wallhanging were collected over many weeks, around different areas in Perth nature reserves. The layout was put together with the balance of different sticks and colours. The sticks were then photographed, hand drawn, hand painted and then transferred onto natural fabric.
The 'Kindling' wall hanging is a celebration of childhood, perhaps a reminder, to seek the beauty in even the smallest and most unlikely of natures gifts.
