Whitby Museum

My life has become a little less hectic over the past few weeks so it’s given me the opportunity to focus on my pieces for Whitby Museum. This has coincided with the latest issue of Be Creative with Workbox magazine which features my article about the museum and my research. You can pick up a copy through their website or view my article here.

In March I visited the museum to take measurements and look at my work in the space, this great tip was given to me by Serena Partridge and it’s proved to be invaluable as some of my colours don’t work in the room.

Back in the studio I’ve been taking the time to reflect on the notes I took on my museum visits last year. We often forget to look back at our notes and sketches but I’ve found this a great way to re-energise myself and start making new pieces.

I’ve also been looking at the samples I made at the start of this year and seeing how I can move forward with new work. It’s important to be critical when looking at your work so that you can make changes and create better pieces.

I’ve been exploring different mixed media techniques which is a bit of a throwback to my uni days. I’d forgotten how much fun stitching with paper can be and I’m enjoying working through these ideas.
