He's a young artist whose work with be in an exhibition that opens tomorrow, 9 Ellis St South Yarra, will find out the dates.
I am his proud mother, this work is done on an industrial sewing machine using cotton thread, yep the stuff we use for our quilting. Young artists do it tough, wouldn't it be wonderful if a thread company like Gutterman or Aurifil Threads sponsored him, he is currently using Gutterman threads, but if you are from Aurifil and wanted to sponsor him l am sure he could be persuaded to make the change!
If someone did decide to back him l would possibly gain some brownie points.
