Garden Figure

My family moved house in 2009 and arrived at the new property very late on a cold, wet winter’s evening. Needless to say we were all very keen to get the van unloaded as quickly as possible!  As my son brought the Felted Lady out of the van I told him to put her in the wooded part of the garden.This was intended to be a temporary home however she has stayed there ever since- to be known as The Garden Lady

2009

Over the years she has quietly blended in with her environment.

We moved to a new home in 2021 and, rather than up-root her from her garden, we had a ceremonial burning to leave her in the soil.

She was the beginning of my textile art journey and this burning signified another new beginning in 2021.
