Stitched and Bound 2012

My Entry – It’s not just what you see…

The hidden stories you hear by being in the right place and time, and asking the right questions…amazing, wonderful and sometimes sad. This work is about 99 of these stories which have given me much admiration for the story tellers.

  1. Hi Louise,
    I was made aware of your piece through Alison Schwabe’s blog and just had to write to say how much I love your piece. I am also experimenting with layering and cutting away (I call my series Stitch & Slash) so it’s nice to see another artist creating art using these techniques. You inspire me.

    • Hi Carol,
      Thanks for your lovely comments. I find this technique full of surprises, you never quite know what is in that layer underneath…a lot like the stories that inspired the piece.
      I really like your “Stitch & Slash” work too.
