featured in hardcopy!

Some of you already have heard of my latest news, its taken me a few weeks to digest and contain my excitement!  As I've mentioned in an earlier post, last years hard work is starting to pay off.  Featured this time is the Quilt from my Expressions Of Love Exhibition in a sumptuously delicious hardcopy entitled TEXTILES: The Art of Mankind by Mary Schoeser and published by Thames and Hudson

Mary Schoeser, a leading authority in the field of textiles and Honorary President of the UK Textile Society and was commissioned by Thames and Hudson to compile this stunning book - It's 568 pages thick and has over 1000 historical and contemporary images...

 
Below is my image and features on page 60, and a paragraph on page 26 talks about my piece - I am just beside myself to be included - this one, of course is in honour of my mother, her memory lives on and now in hardcopy and soon the Quilt among other artworks from Expressions Of Love will travel in a touring exhibition across Queensland.  (More details in my next post!)

 
In loving memory of my spirited mother, Rosemary Bourke.

  3. hi Kim, is this the one where you used teabags? congratulations - I might have to get the book as it also contains work by Sadhana Peterson of Mud Colony fame. I'm sure your mother would have been very pleased but perhaps not surprised?
