Take a peek into Priscilla’s world!!!

I recently had the pleasure of spending the day with the fabulous photographer and animator Ginny Koppenhol as she photographed me and my studio. This spring I have been collaborating once again with Ginny making a new stop animated film featuring my work. Watch this space for more details as we will be launching ‘ A Little Something Remembered’ next month.

We have been working together on a number of projects over the last 18 months and Ginny has visited my studio several times. It was on her most recent visit that Ginny suggested we record my working environment giving a an insight into the making processes used in my work.

I hope you enjoy the photographs of my collection of ephemera and materials used in the  making and creating – seeing some work before and after its completed. My little family of friends are very dear each one loving sculpted and stitched together using found materials – each one waiting to find new homes to go to and exciting new films to star in. If you haven’t see our first production here is a link to ‘A Little Something Surreal’!!! https://youtu.be/KFTEaOsnQt0

Enjoy Everyone!
