When invited to make new work using flax/linen for the linen festival in Canada I was excited and worried at the same time. I had never used flax or linen before, this was a big challenge.
I began my research by carefully sprinkling the flax seeds into a flower pot and observing every stage of the growing plants. It was fun!

THE PENGUIN REPORT
Penguin is a name given to a very intelligent herring gull who visits us everyday asking for food for over four years.
At the beginning, he came to have a drink of water and picked up any breadcrumbs the pigeons left in our back garden. Gradually he stayed a little longer looking for us to put food out for him.
We put food out when he comes and in Spring 2007 he started a family, and he came with his wife and was successfully raised two chicks. They came early in the morning and in the afternoon everyday until their chicks left and the couple disappeared for a few weeks and came back for the winter.
