This year Daisy has taken the plunge and decided that it's time to become a textile artist and teacher full time.
Me? I’m not Daisy Moon, but I will be writing her blog from now on as she is too busy and although she’s great at putting fabrics together, she gets a nervous when it comes to writing. So let me introduce myself. My name is George and I have been Daisy’s constant companion for the last six years. I see myself as a Chris Hemsworth lookalike, see what you think.
Believe it or not, this piece is only a couple of inches square and the fabric is hand turned and stitched onto paper. It was something that just cried out to her and she answered in the only way she could. Even the paper itself is older than me!
Daisy has been spending time searching shops and the internet for more old fabric, however for the last two years she has been creating a series of works that are inspired by the First World War.
Her father, who passed away a few years ago, collected Military badges and while this hasn’t made its way into her life she has been touched by the simple human stories that are told in letters written by soldiers in the trenches. Sometimes the simplest things can move you in ways that have to be made into art.
A beautiful piece even if its in its raw state, however when you put it in a frame...
It becomes a must have.
