“All over the world, there has been a greater sense of wanting to record, to capture and to remember. I thought about how I would I like to contain my memories. Was there something other than a sketchbook that I could use to record walks from home or to remember days out?
And so, the notion of a stitched Busy Body as a memory keeper came into being.”
Rachael Singleton is a mixed media and textile artist from West Yorkshire, England, who combines paper, fabrics, fibres and other materials to create one of a kind artworks inspired by the natural world around her
