« SDA Conference: Speaker Highlights | Main | Seeking Balance »

May 31, 2009


Having heard Rosalind Wyatts' interview on the "Midweek" programme today, I felt encouraged to discover more of her work and find her motivation and unique delivery utterly compelling.Her ability to convey common truths, resonant with the fragility of life - and all its inherent beauty, is a true rarity amongst the dull dross and
predictable fakery of most artists offerings.
Her evident natural skill fused with richly diverse and eclectic inspirational sources, allow these gorgeous pieces to enchant,educate and bewitch us.
For this skill & beauty-truly out of season, we must be very grateful.

I've just come across your kind comments regarding 'The Stitch Lives of Others' series. I am touched and humbled that the work has had such a far-reaching appeal - if you are interested I will be speaking about it on BBC Radio 4 program 'Midweek', on Wednesday 22nd July 2009. Best wishes, and if you are ever in West London, you are welcome to come and visit me at my Studio.

I just looked at Rosalind's work. Very powerful and deeply moving. What a treat to be able to see this. Thank you!

I really enjoyed seeing Rosalind's work...it has inspired me as well -- thank you for sharing the link -- I too plan to revisit...good luck with your new job...
