Walking my dogs across the fields and noticing how busy life is with the seasonal task of harvesting, hence the title of this piece of art. Using a patchwork of fabrics that I have dyed and printed for the background, I then found complimentary fabrics to cut and shape into straw bales.
Multi-coloured thread was used to machine stitch the ‘bales’ in place.
Please bear in mind that due to differences in monitor settings there might be a slight variation on colour. As far as possible, I have replicated the colours in the photographs true to the art work.
For illustrative purposes the photographs show the art displayed in a black frame. This is not included in the price.Suggested frame size is 25cm x 25cm.
The photographs show the work mounted on white acid free card. This is what you will receive.
For posting, the work is wrapped in cellophane, packed between two pieces of card, bubble wrapped and posted in a padded envelope, to arrive safely, ready to go in the frame of your choice.

I love creating textile art which has special significance to me and my past. I first embarked on this medium some years ago when I gave my sister a special housewarming present. I dyed old linen sheets that belonged to our Grandmother and inspiration for the piece came from our father’s garden.
I loved making this and the ideas have continued and evolved.
I use a variety of printing techniques to create the background. Following this the fabric is then carefully selected and cut into the shapes I create usually from nature. Using multi-coloured threads, these are machine stitched into place.
I now exhibit and sell my work in a number of UK galleries
