For my Final Major Project on the Art Foundation course I decided to illustrate a series of scenes from one of my favourite books, Cider with Rosie, by Laurie Lee.

The project emphasised the interaction between the characters, in particular the sisters, Dorothy and Phyllis who were often found stitching and gossiping.  I focused on recreating the quote by the young Laurie as he wonders at the textile creation his sisters make before visiting Granny Trill, "Enthralled as ever by their patchwork glories, I followed closely behind." This was done through a painting of the sisters proudly  holding a colourful patchwork quilt and a focus on incorporating sewing objects in my prints.
