in october 2015 I was lucky enough to be asked to create some work for Waterstones.

they were refurbishing one of their stores in birmingham and adding in a new cafe in which they wanted to display work from local artists and photographers.

working on the theme ‘birmingham’ I chose to create the two pieces below.

the first a birmingham road sign created using watercolour and machine embroidery.
the second a vintage cadburys chocolate wrapper created using fabric paint and machine embroidery.
