In my work I like to take a vintage detailed image in black and juxtapose it with contemporary appliqué cottons and emboidery. I like the way that this often puts that very detailed image in a setting slightly at odds with its' normally associated surroundings. In this picture the colours I was drawn to reminded me of the traditional Willow Pattern china and I managed to find a small piece of fabric with that pattern. It can't really be seen in the picture but it is there as my starting point and inspiration. I really enjoy the process of making choices about pattern, colour, stitches, shapes and placement of the elements of the picture and I like the way this is all grounded around a detailed image from another era.
