IneAwe Stays: Self portrait embroidery

Last week Thursday an interview by Josh Hayman from my first (on many I hope) residency with 10and5 and InAwe Stays was launched. It was a real gift to plug out of life for a week and stay in SUCH a beautiful space and just sew my life away.

It took about a day to scrape myself off the heated floor and get myself going. I finished off a piece from an image from a shoot I did for Rolling Stones years ago, and my largest yet, a self portrait. It was my  Cape Town inspired piece for the residence.

The reference image for my piece was taken by Lesca Steyn. Any time Ive worked with her its been such a seemless process.
