Rough And Tumble
June and July is the prime time in the year to see fox cubs playing, as they come out of their dens and learn their new life skills. Inspired by this I created this piece capturing the character of a pair of fox cubs, as they clamber around the forest floor, squashing ferns in their game of rough and tumble.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, embroidered and corded, the fox cub and fers were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery.
