British artist Donna Wilson was recently featured in Knit 2 Together, an exhibition of knitted artwork mounted by the Crafts Council in London. Wilsonís installation is Pick Knit, a group of close to thirty delightful stuffed creatures knitted out of lambswool. The exhibition, which will be touring England and Ireland over the next year, seeks to promote a more innovative side to the humble knit one, purl two. Wilson, who has done design work for Agent Provocateur and Tord Boontje, is a gifted artist who injects a charming sense of humour into her creations. Cannibdoll is described as being "happy and selfish" and "dislikes eating vegetables".
Artist: Donna Wilson
