Stitching a Love Story

About this project

The work in this exhibition is about my journey as a parent, having children has made me reflect on my own upbringing and priorities. The portrait work examines the relationships between family members, the joys and the frustrations.

He is so like you
Photographer: Emily Jo Gibbs
'I always knew you would be a great Dad' One of things Emily admires about her husband is that he dares to be different; he is interested in the unusual and the nonconformist. He also enjoys provoking a reaction; the irony is their son is just the same and drives his father to distraction. 2013 Cotton, silk organza, hand stitch Framed 50cm x 40.5cm
