Helen Edwards

Summarising each day in my diary helps me to make sense of it ready to face the next day afresh. I began stitching fragments of old diaries between layers of silk just before my cancer diagnosis. After my surgery and before my chemotherapy, I was determined to complete the 2 metre hanging for the Summer Exhibition at MAKE Southwest where it won Peter Randall-Page’s President’s Prize. The work seemed to represent both my life journey and my cancer fight journey too.
