When I was about 15 years old I discovered Claude Monet. My art teacher opened the windows of wonder for me with his beautiful violet colours and painting style....what a combination and I was hungry to see more of his work. I didn't know then the path my life would follow, into the world of colour and texture, and that Monet would accompany me along the way.
But accompany me he has, and this collection of handcrafted designer scarves is now my signature collection.
My loom was set up in our cottage after some time away from it. I'd ordered my first box of yarn which I excitedly spread on the floor. I sat in the middle of the cones of colour and thought 'what next'. Inspiration came in the form of a book I'd bought about Claude Monet. I draped swatches of coloured yarn across the beautiful Impressionist paints. The muse had struck and continues to inspire me daily as I dye and weave. Hence Wearable Art ~ Inspired by Art
