Towers 7

Most of the proceeds of this original artwork will go directly to the Khadija Saye Memorial Fund. Khadija tragically lost her life in the Grenfell Tower fire. The fund will help young artists whose background and circumstances might not grant them access to such support.

As the fire was burning, and we all watched helplessly, I spoke to my dad, a pitman. He told me nothing had changed, and that we were still waiting at the pit head for our dead.

It is made using these front pages of the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers, which I found on a train after the Grenfell Tower fire.

The red thread once belonged to my nana, who would not have approved of my knots.

The newspaper is hand-stitched to this paper, and then hand-stitched to this paper.

All of my artwork is individually numbered, this piece is 849.

It is unique and can be found in my new shop.

I love the Folksy community, but Tictail is apparently free, so I have just opened a shop. I think. This, in theory, means that more money will go to the Grenfell fund. Overseas postage settings are a tad confusing (to me), so I am not going to post overseas until I find my feet. However, I am paranoid that I have done this incorrectly, so if any of my overseas friends have a few minutes, I would really appreciate you taking a look to make sure that you are unable to buy the one product available. Thank you, but no pressure xx

31st May

This is Maisy Mouse. She has been a big part of my children’s lives, as they loved the books, by Lucy Cousins, when they were younger.

My son, now fourteen, was given a little Maisy toy (she was attached to the book) by my friend Julie, when he was born. He carried her everywhere with him.

I wanted to add her because it is the last day of my napkin and she is waving at us. Also, she is standing above the May which is a bit like Maisy.
