After not doing the dishes for two weeks, back in 2002, I found this beautiful blanket of mould in my kitchen.
The image I took/made of it, I used as an inspiration for a jacquard woven blanket in 2007.
Mould being a metaphor for when things ending or dying,
always something new comes alive. Transformation.
This was followed by a drawing/collage I made in 2010
