Its taken me a few days from photographing Tricia to blogging her portrait – I’ve been wrestling with a decision in that time. I’ve been really undecided as to whether this project should be completely in black & white or whether some people would need colour.
I’m still a little undecided and I may well come back and update this post with the black and white versions but for the time being it’s colour. Tricia’s business is after all about colour and texture, her love of quilting and dissatisfaction with her job lead her to start her own business supplying quilting fabrics at craft fairs and to quilters groups. Tricia’s passion is infectious, its hard to listen to her talk about her love of fabrics and textures without stroking the nearest fabric and I found myself getting excited about the patterns even though I wouldn’t have a clue about quilt making !
I’m trying really hard to limit myself to two images per person, so here are my two. I’m sure some people may think the second doesn’t qualify as a portrait but I’m a firm believer in portraits not necessarily needing faces.
Tricia’s business is Tilia Fabric and she can be found on Facebook.
