Front of linen cushion.
This is the first of my baroque type fabrics made into cushions, the idea is to get the viewer to look closer, that there is more to see than meets the eye. Similar to us as complex human beings!
This design encompasses symbols and elements which hold huge significance in my life. Ie;
The beautiful female figure is my best friend who holds me up on a regular basis throughout my life. (My initials are in her hand), a sillouette of a Lily represents my gorgeous little granddaughter of the same name. The heart shaped grenade is a symbol for my favourite band Greenday. The list goes on but just see what else you can see.

Remembering back to going to stay at Grandad's house for holidays...the wallpaper in the spare bedroom was acid/ popculture type 1970's paper and if you stared long enough shapes and faces would begin to appear, quite trippy really.
This is the idea and inspiration for my baroque designs.
Have a look at the colour lovers blog for more inspiration.
