The Bronte Parsonage Museum…..

I have been working really hard and decided i needed a day of inspiration….and gosh it was a perfect day and just what i need to spur me on in my own work. I had never been to the parsonage before, so that was a real treat, but to see Su Blackwell`s beautiful book installations was AMAZING! I turned to my friend and exclaimed i felt sick and she knew, because she felt the same, it was through excitement! I was interested in how much the heritage venue had allowed her to alter. I am finding myself up against lots of challenges like not being able to fix anything on ANY walls( blu tac was refused), whereas Su Blackwell actually stapled the original Bronte bed!!  I don`t how she has managed it but it looked amazing and i have been inspired by it all week so thankyou Su- I am envious- if only i could use staples!

My favourite room was the Bronte playroom, where Su turns the stories the Brontes made up as children into beautiful book installations.

“The Talking Tower” wallpaper….

I am creating peacock wallpaper, but i want it to take on a life of it`s own and not just be a flat pattern, so i have designed it to be copied and laser cut….and then positioned around the tower……here is the design which will be repeated…..
