Following on from our successful collaboration last year, Alison and I have been busy, developing lots of new ideas – I have just finished weaving a lovely selection of Alison’s beautiful water colour paintings, which will feature in an upcoming exhibition in June.
The theme of the exhibition is Gardens, and Alison has concentrated on a variety of studies of flower heads. I have really enjoyed dyeing up a rainbow, random dyed warp, which suit the soft colours beautifully.

We have also been developing our more abstract pieces with Alison hand dyeing water colour paper to which I then add gold leaf, and highlights of my own hand printed paper. The colours of these pieces range from vibrant hues of pinks, reds and golds, to soft shades of silver and pale gold.
I am so looking forward to seeing them when they have been mounted and framed, they will be available in my studio very soon and details of our exhibition will follow shortly.

You can see more of Alison’s work on her website www.alisoncboard-fineart.co.uk and our joint work on the Collaborations page.
