When Everything Around Us Falls

This last fortnight has been a very painful time for our family. Our beautiful Mum had a stroke which has impaired her speech and to some extent affected her ability to carry out everyday tasks. Thankfully, she has no physical weakness and is still mobile. Mum is home now and is still smiling through it all!

My Mum has a lovely smile and I see it in my own children  - one in particular-when they smile.

                                      Mum and I last Christmas

IWith everything that has been happening, it has been quite poignant to have been working on this piece of work for the next Ten Plus Textiles exhibition which will be at the Platform Gallery in October.

                    "When Everything Around Us Falls"

I was inspired by some of the words of this song called "Shelter" by Ray Lamontagne.


  1. So sorry to hear your news, sending very best wishes for a full recovery for your mum. That's a lovely photo of you both and you're right she has a beautiful smile!

    Your new piece is lovely, I love the understated background colours and adore the birdcage! Art has always helped me cope with stressful and difficult times, I hope it's doing the same for you xx

  2. Sorry to hear about your mum hope she is making improvements, sending hugs. Love your piece of work the colours and design are just beautiful

    Bee happy x
