Jelina Haines - Ethical Fashion – Textile and beyond

Jelina Haines takes wearable apparel to interesting lengths with exhibition “Ethical Fashion – Textile and beyond.” The felted objects are unique, including a necklace of felted red chilies! Men’s discarded ties have been sewn into a shapely ladies’ dress. Where does this leave the men? We need an exhibition of men’s apparel next Jelina!

Tonia Greene - Still Eclecting

A collection of mixed media drawings, paintings and photographs. A feast of beautiful, evocative depictions of nature. Thanks, Tonia

Using an arterial theme, Nikki has linked the human heart with tree branch tracery to produce some beautiful effects. Congratulations!
