Nobody Cares

I first read this short poem by Emily Dickinson in a high school literature class and it just stayed with me.  Particularly now in the age of social media madness I often think about it.  I'm a very private person however having worked in the commercial world for many years I do understand the need for marketing your work.  It's a push pull conflict.  Even now this series which I call Nobody Cares is buried in my Projects page which somewhat ironically nobody will look at.

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

Cushion Project

Turning my digital artwork into practical everyday items mostly just to see if I could do it.  The collection is available from my Etsy CUSHION SHOP and can be produced in multiples to order.  

The designs combine elements produced through a process of digital manipulation of my own original photographs.








DOTTY FOR YOU knicker sewing kits also available.
