Fannys for thought? Casey Jenkins and her impressive knitting skills

While looking for artist inspiration I remembered reading about a woman who knitted using wool kept in her vagina… at the time I didn’t give it too much thought, I did think power to her though for being so innovative! Now that I’m basing my work on the human form and looking closely at the female body I have a lot more time and respect for her work and reasoning behind it. Casey Jenkins work, Casting off my Womb, has a close connection to what I what I want to express through my current project, and she is an inspriation. Her work helps me not to fear what others think of the work you produce, and confirms my thoughts that the body is the most natural, common thing we know, its not scary it isn’t  embarrassing and it’s here to stay!  Here is a video feed are some pictures of her work;
