In this post I would like to introduce my ‘City Farm Chick’ printed scarf which is the fifth scarf from my new collection My London. This long wool cashmere scarf, comes in two colour stories and is a perfect example of how everyday life and activities feeds into my work.
On a visit to one of London’s city farms my son was offered to have a closer look at one of the chickens. This particular chick had other plans and with a very rock and roll city chick attitude it nipped my son on the finger. We nick named the offender ‘Keith Richards’ as its appearance and attitude was more rock and roll than most
chickens we have ever encountered before. The rough and ready style this chicken was painted and penned in was a direct reaction to this incident. The scale of this print could never have been small or ditsy. It had to be large to match the personality of its source of inspiration, Keith ‘The Chicken’ Richards.
