I am delighted to be exhibiting in Art in Romney Marsh 2016. Find me at Newchurch, 17/18, 24/25 September and 1/2, 8/9 October.
Mother and daughter explore and make in response to St Peter and St Paul in Newchurch. Mother reflects on her own childhood, and skills passed down from her own mother and grandmother, foragers and makers. If our precious habitats are to survive, it is by re-enchanting nature for our very young.
As a child, my nearest social place was the local church. An old man used to take care of it, sometimes we wandered down the lanes and checked on the local cattle, once he took us to watch them being milked. His name was Cecil. He once told my friends sister, who was very young, that if a stinging nettle had flowers on it, it wouldn’t sting, I think it was a joke, but she touched it and cried, a lot!
