  A Phoenix Yet in Flames    87 x 123 cm, Embroidery, beading and applique on mixed material   A phoenix sits on a skull, its tail afire, about to burst into light.

  Girl Mad as Birds    270 x 437 cm, Embroidery, beading and acrylic paint appliqué on mixed material       'A stranger has come To share my room in the house not right in the head, A girl mad as birds    Bolting the night of the door with her arm her plume. Strait in the mazed bed She deludes the heaven-proof house with entering clouds'    from Love in the Asylum- Dylan Thomas   Inspired by the Welsh goddess Rhiannon from The Mabinogion, with her three magic birds, and her enchanted horse. Blodeuwedd the owl captures the man who cursed her. Referencing the old folk song 'Silver Dagger', alluding to the 'dagger' as the silver needle, stitching together a portrait of a face, as if through embroidering, the girl is able to see an image of herself unfold.
