Josie Russell Textiles

An article in one of the Sunday papers this week caught my eye - Josie Russell (the girl who's mother and sister were murdered in front of her and she herself was attacked with a hammer) has begun to exhibit landscape textiles made from recycled fabrics.  She has a few for sale on her site, but exhibitions are also listed.  She lives in Snowdonia, so uses the surrounding views for inspiration. 

I love the fact that she's trying to leave behind the victim stereotype and do something creative and positive with her life - lots and lots of luck to her.
