In October 2015 I had my first solo exhibition and the opening night was incredibly life affirming.
Putting the exhibition together was at times challenging, but never stressful. Love.Honour.Cherish was a collection of beautifully woven pieces that honour and worship the earth beneath our feet and the new growth that can emerge from it.
I sat for hours at a time on weeknights and weekends just working on my weaving. I spent most of my evenings after work in the six months leading up to the exhibition sitting on the floor surrounded by leaves and sticks.
For me weaving, it’s about being still and letting the beauty emerge.
I know this to be true. We all have new growth ready to emerge, and art and creativity can help you reconnect with your imagination, and give you new insights and perspectives. But remember, the key is to slow down and see what beauty emerges.
