I have been revisiting my old work in progress photographs from my COLLECT work for the Saatchi.

Even though the leaves are barely changing colour, I've been noticing the rose hips hinting at autumn.   Working in a series has become an effective way for me to create work in various sizes and price ranges.  As I'm working on several pieces at once, I can make use of the colours and materials to their full potential.  It also reduces the thread changes in the sewing machine!
