  • Knowledge and understanding of the world - Roanna Wells
    Inspired by my time working in a nursery combined with an continuing interest in child psychology, art therapy and speech and language development, this ongoing project captures the specific point in a child's development where meaning is beginning to be put to seemingly random 'scribbles'. By translating the child's spontaneous mark making into detailed hand embroidered pieces, some of the intent and importance of the young artist is aiming to be given back. Currently being documented through instagram via the #scribblesintospecials hashtag.
