I recently spent a weekend in a crypt. This was the crypt of the derelict St Elisabeth’s Church in Eastbourne and it was playing a part in Eastbourne’s Artist’s Open Houses. It is a crypt with walls decorated with beautiful Feibusch murals and these are apparently under threat from the whole building being torn down.
I was there to see the captivating storyteller Sally Willow perform her Goddess in the Crypt story. I’d collaborated with Sally in producing a series of small handmade books and we had some of these available over the weekend. One of these books was a retelling of the Red Riding Hood story (emphasising the rites of passage into womanhood) called ‘Red’ – I provided some wolf drawings, which I enjoyed getting my teeth into…
Your artwork is inspiring and evocative
