I'm working on a wall hanging for a converted barn. Looking for inspiration I gaze out of my window at Haworth and the surrounding Pennine fells. Mostly when I look out I am checking the weather but when I really open my eyes I see an ever-changing landscape of textures and colours: dark peaty browns, lush mossy greens, the yellow ochre of lichens and the vibrant purples of bilberries and heather.
I notice how the dry stone walls define and shape the land. These 500 year old monuments provide a tangible link with our predecessors and much needed shelter for a myriad of creatures and plants living there today.
This will be my starting point.
