“She looks like cake. Sweet and delicious, luxuriously glazed with divinity and filled with an abundance of fortitude and love." - Alice - by Tanya Marie Reeves

    The heart
    is the symbolic centre of our being, the very core of life and the embodiment of love itself. The heart shape is one of the most recognised symbols in the world associated with feelings of love, respect, hope, joy, kindness and compassion.

    The overall predominance of Pink tones temper the passion of red with the purity of white, resulting in a light tender colour associated with romance, sweetness and happiness, fantasy and the divine feminine.

    Name and Inspiration

    I've had a pretty crap year all round, I'm not going to lie, and my creativity has suffered. Until Alice, I had actually been taking time off from even walking through the door of my art studio. After two months pause (plus a prior year of minimal production) I was beginning to feel the tingling of a familiar pull... No pressure please! I just wanted to create something beautiful. I utilised a pre-loved outline, and as always when I delve into textile applique, it was the beautiful selection of the fabrics themselves which intuitively led my way.

    Alice is a German name meaning Noble. However, I chose this timeless name not for it's literal meaning, but predominantly for the connection to the fantastic and nonsensical nature of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which balances elements that make sense, with many which do not, and I believe that right there, describes my personal aesthetic of artwork perfectly.
