Vintage fabric handbag mirrors and broaches
When I originally started my illustration work, I bought a badge-maker to make badges and mirrors to apply my illustrations to.
More recently, this has evolved into my purchasing partially damaged pieces of vintage fabrics and embroideries which I salvage and repurpose. This is a really satisfying process. I get to enjoy seeing these fabrics live on again, and I think of who might have once embroidered them or whose home they once adorned.
