From the 13th August The World Reimagined Globes will be part of trails going on across many host cities across the UK.


The globe I painted titled 'Stitching and Mending' will be at location 10 in Leeds city centre.


My design aims to highlight the extraordinary patterns and needlework skills of African American quilts. These quilts undoubtedly tell human stories, some not easy to tell, but each deserving a platform.


Choosing no single unifying style, I celebrate the uniqueness and individuality of each quilt maker. Finding the deeper meanings for consideration within the visual patterns.
