This piece was created after departing from my usual structured, planned style of art quilts. The 3D effect of using a ceramic mask was something I just had to try and I 'went for it' without a plan! The top section of the background is hand made silk paper, and the dress of the Duchess has been created using collage techniques with freestyle stitching between the panels. This piece hangs in my spare bedroom and my daughter (37) thinks she is really scary hence the name. In fact, the last time my daughter stayed with me she hung a cotton serviette over her face so she could sleep!!! Oh dear.. methinks I had better try again!
