Announcement My artworks and poetry tell the story hidden just below the surface of daily life; the story enfolded in our memories and recognized in all the places that we search.

Making makes me happy.
I work in a little white studio in my backyard with my two red-headed sons underfoot. We build and sew, plant dye and collage, surrounded by trays of book words, cocoons, feathers, leaves, wings, chunks of beeswax, vintage embroideries and measuring tapes. I make pieces with paper and fabric ~ hand-stitching, poem-forming and sculpting from unusual materials, along with sewing quiet books for children from found vintage embroideries. My sewing basket comes with me everywhere for a bit of hand sewing during playtimes or naps. I can be found on Instagram at @thebrookeway.
