Layers of text from birth and marriage certificates printed onto various materials and papers with a photo of a baby peeking through the trees

Layers of text interwoven into textured knit of wire, wool, ribbon and machine wrapped cord.

Hidden words within the layers of surface.

These images are elements of a hanging for a project called "Palimpsest".

This is the central panel for the hanging.

This is an element of one of the side panels- stylised leaves with photos printed onto organza layered with birth certificates and marriage certificates onto acetates stitched with silver metallic thread.


  1. Your course is really pulling out the artistic side of you. Keep up the good work.

  2. hi Sheila, have looked at your stuff and its fantastic. I love the picture of the baby peeking through the trees created from layers of text from birth and marriage certificates. Can I buy it!!

  3. I love these very delicate and sympathetic colours reflected in hidden words, feelings and memories.

  4. Hi Sheila - I think this is fantastic! It's my favourite piece. Rose.
