Envelope Project

The Envelope Project was a combination of an upcoming group exhibition ‘Own Voice’ a group of Lismore Artists with disabilities run by artists with disabilities, which was a first in NSW. The other factor was that upon my ex-husbands passing and going through his belongings we found envelopes and invitations to a wedding which would have been over 50 years old. These envelopes are what I used for the envelope project, hand carving each one and embellishing them with hand printed stamps and red string. It was a time consuming and lovely way to process through the grief of losing the father of my children.
