Questions.....

As you hopefully know I've got a big solo show coming out this year which is the biggest thrill but also the biggest amount of work..but is really the biggest thrill.
Im working on a book to go with the show in which I will tell the story of the Wish Post and hopefully be stuffed full of pictures.
Im being interviewed and then this will be in the book...
I find it tricky sometimes with being asked questions in that I come up with the same answers and this is generally because I get asked the same ones over and over. It usually goes..where does your inspiration come from, how many cats do you have..do you wear bowties all the time and what is your favourite colour....I always get what is your favourite colour..I don't know about you but mine changes all the time..anyway...
so I would like to ask you for your help..is there anything you would like me to be asked. It would be a huge help as right now my mind is a bit blank.
Any help would be really great.
Huge thanks in advance.

    2. That is so cool. My favourite antique sewing machines to collect are Frister & Rossman.

  3. Hi! This is an inspiration question -but with a twist - what author or illustrator do you find inspiring? Do you have a favourite book or picture book that speaks to your art? By the way, My lovely daughters gave my your book, Living in a Fairy Tale World , for Christmas and its the best! I just love it.

  4. Do you think about what you would like to make and then story builds around that or the other way round? If that makes sense.

  5. Do your animals and insects have stories that emerge as you are making them? Do you ever share those stories?

  6. Are you self taught or did you learn sewing techniques? If so, where did you learn the skills to make your amazing creations? Thank you.

    1. I can answer this one here..yes self taught. I could sew quite well anyway and have always been able to mend clothes and take jeans up and sew buttons on. but the creature making was just lots and lots of practise. As i use med weight cotton the most its something Im used to working with and know how it behaves. I use lots of other fabrics but generally the main bodies and forms are cotton. I love velvet but it drives me crazy sewing it.

  7. What sort of child were you? Are you still interested in the same things or subjects as you were when you were young? What do you think the younger version of yourself would make of you?

    Are there any materials you particularly dislike working with?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Do you plan what to make or do you sometimes just start sewing and see if the fabric shapes itself and you get a feel for what it is going to be as you spend time on it? Sue m

  9. Do you use the input of others whilst your creations are evolving, or, do you shut yourself away until your masterpieces are fully formed? Debby F.

  10. Do you have any plans for any other "flora" creations - like your very LOVELY mushrooms?

  11. Question one: I know that you've said in the past that you made jewelry for a while, and you've been creating your amazing fabric sculptures for some time now, I was wondering if your interest wanders as you think of all the other things you would like to be doing in different mediums or if your current work satisfies the creative itch, so to speak. For example, do you fantasize about making picture books, or stop-motion animation, or becoming a potter someday?

    Another question: As an artist I am really interested in drawing (or making) as research, the idea that as you interact with something creatively you are in fact learning things from it that you might not learn through other fields of study. As you interact with each of your sculptures do you find that you come to know the subjects (badgers, mushrooms, hares, etc) in ways you didn't before? Does this knew knowledge inform your work in ways you might not have anticipated?

  12. My question seems to have disappeared so I'll ask again: How do you develop your patterns from concept through construction? Are they all done from manual drawings or do you incorporate some software development? I'm trying to visualize how you get all those parts shaped and fit together.♥

  13. I too am so interested in your process... how much you are able to be spontaneous with your materials and how much planning/patterning/sketching (either 2 or 3 dimensional) is necessary or unavoidable. Do you ever struggle to maintain interest through the process from ideation to execution and finishing?

  14. Do you have secret creatures that we'll never see?

    Do you have a favorite creature? If so, which one?

    When you sleep do your dreams bring visions of new creatures?

    Are your creatures alive in your dreams?

    Which is more gratifying, machine sewing or hand sewing?

    What is the farthest you've ever worked on a piece and then stopped, choosing to never finish it?

    What are your experiences with insects and animals that you feel influence your work?

    Do you have any fears or phobias about any insects or animals?

    Which century would you choose to have been born in?

    What 10 (or less) things would you take to a desert island for a year?

    *I adore your work* xx

  15. Hello! I’ve been wondering if the elements of design play any part in your creative process; do you think of movement, shape, form or balance when you create your sculptures or do you just create what you see in your mind.

    Do you keep a sketchbook of some kind and draw out what you’re planning to make, or do you just see if I’m your mind and create it?

  17. Did you have pets as a child and secret places you would go to explore Nature and be alone with your thoughts and creativity?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wondering if when you awake in the morning if your creations have repositioned or moved themselves around in your studio? I am curios because this happens to me quite often..sometimes thinking that I have not been invited to their PARTY !💕

  19. My question is of a financial nature.....(I hope you don't find it too personal). Are you now able to live solely off the sales of your fantastic creations? How long did it take to reach that point? In the past have you had to take on commissions that you didn't really wish to do purely for financial reasons? Have you always had enough conviction in yourself that you would be able to make a living from doing what you do, or was it a great leap of faith? And finally, do you keep a personal collection of your favourite pieces that you've made over the years, and one day would you like that collection to be housed in a museum for posterity? x

  20. P.S. I also use a Frister-Rossman sewing machine, of the 70's era. It has never let me down.

  25. Hi, so I have a question, or maybe more, but to start ... do you dream with work?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ooh, another book! I love the first one.
    I have some questions you may not have been asked before:
    ~ When I first saw your work I imagined it was quite tiny but it's enormous! Do you ever work in miniature? What inspired you to make such large pieces?
    ~ Do you keep any creatures you couldn't stand to part with? Which and why or why not?
    ~ How do you feel about cutting up old pieces of work to create your own? I use reclaimed fabric quite a bit myself and have an odd relationship with dismantling a made object to make another.
    ~ Do you name your creations and make up stories for them? I imagine you might :).
