Upfest is an equal opportunity festival and this year’s logo was designed by a woman, Gemma Compton. Some of my favourite pieces from this year were completed by women this year and I wanted to showcase some of them today.
As a “sometime” seamstress, I loved this work, photos don’t do the bird justice. Using the ready-made mesh ( you can do the same with tennis rackets), the artist, Danielle Couch, used long stitch embroidery.
I am a huge fan of Miss Wah and have long admired her work with Posca pens. I had the chance to talk to her and admire her shoes, which its a shame I didn’t get any photos of!
