Remembering Iceland

So Soft - Alexandra Häberli

So Soft, Alexandra Häberli, mixed media, 2012

Alexandra Häberli was one of the amazing artists who I was lucky enough to meet during my time with the Nes artist residency in Iceland. Alexandra is from Switzerland, and she produces these beautiful collages using paint, crayons and photographic cutouts, often working directly onto the surface of the wall. For my birthday she gave me a lovely little art work which I am still carrying around in my back pack with me. She recently put this picture up on facebook and tagged me in it, and it took me a little while to work out why… until I looked closely.

Keeping Cosy

Bristol is a chilly place – sometimes you just need something to keep you cosy. I have once again picked up my knitting needles to start on my next body of work which will comprise mainly of soft sculptures, interactive installations and cosy, cosy costumes.
