I look forward to your feedback 🌷

I am absolutely thrilled to announce the publication of my new book The Death and Birth of My Mother and I.

I have been extremely privileged and am very grateful to have been able to be by my mother’s side in the process of her transition between the diagnosis of metastatic melanoma and the moment of her passing – a once in a lifetime experience I will never forget.

The Death and Birth of My Mother and I cover

Writing about the experience of six intense months filled with emotion has allowed me to process the whole event from astonishing disbelief to the inevitable outcome: the miracle of death – or arguably, the metaphorical birth of my mother as well as myself.

I hope you will enjoy my story. A very personal perspective based on diary notes by my mother as well as my own.

To celebrate the launch of my book I am giving away three copies, otherwise available for purchase in paperback and Kindle eBook on Amazon.

No holds barredSo this is the string drawing I completed in April.

The idea was to create an image without first using pencil or pen, and to let the string do the drawing.

It was an experimental and organic process in which it showed my tendency to be precise and controlled ~ everything had to be in the exact right place. I did this process starting with a beige wool recycled from an unravelled jersey, then a burgundy, wool from the same old jersey. I loved working in layers, creating depth, as well as perspective with lines disappearing into a vanishing point. My aim was to create movement, into, and out of, the image.

Once I had finished with the broken fence I was ready to put some slack in the wool and let it hang naturally. (Actually I did this with the little sheep in the background also.)

It was only later that I really felt the need to let the material do its own thing, by almost throwing the light blue cotton on the pins already there, transforming the upper part of the image.
