Di Ellis – Embroidery Art – Salad Days
This double portrait was stitched during the gloomy days of the Melbourne covid lockdown.
“Mod” Barbie and her best mate Midge were for me the first of the modern influencers.
Young women with all the benefits of financial independence. They had stylish bachelor flats, smart cars, exotic pets and to my eyes, clothes and accessories to die for.
