an afternoon of pure bliss

...visiting the Faculty of Art & Design degree show 2009 at Manchester Metropolitan University.
My favourite section is always textiles and since you're not allowed to take photos in there I bought a brochure, and I have a fabulous collection of postcards now. I was very taken with the work of Lisa Stannard, so much so that I've ordered a print from her! I love the contrast of black and white with a hint of colour and she has a very painterly feel to her work.

Roses featured very heavily both in the textile exhibition and in the foundation art show. This work is by Laura Walker, BA (hons) textiles.

And how cool is this illustration by Kirsty Wingfield who studied illustration and animation!

More eye candy tomorrow :)


  1. So that's where you've been all day, you lucky girl!

  2. Hi Sarah

    I googled my name to see what came up and found your blog. Nice to see that people like my work. Thank you for putting it on your blog.

    I have now set up a website
    Have a look and see what you think.


Thanks for leaving a comment; it makes my day!!
