Ruth started as a photo in a magazine article about ageing. I was drawn to the way she seems to be smiling contently in her sleep.I see this portrait as a celebration of female maturity.

The background, which includes recycled nightie lace, references sleep. Ruth was drawn on top using a mix of hand and machine embroidery, in wobbly stitches that celebrate her wrinkles.

Professionally printed to the highest quality, you will find it difficult to distinguish between the original textile artwork and the Giclee print.

This portrait is printed on Hahnemuhle German Etching archival paper. The acid-free paper is slightly textured, like watercolour paper, with a matte, natural white finish.
