Personal History

Nurture Mother and the Child
Silver point, bee, swan down and gold leaf of traditional gesso on wood with hand felted wool
This work comes from my memories of wearing annoying mittens on a string as a child, playing outside and being amazed by the minute of life. They also reflect my interest in Iconography, hand symbolism and hand chakras. The bee nestled in its fluffy bed has obvious associations with the social, genetics and complex ritual. My family have always collected natural objects and this love of nature in all its forms I hope to pass onto my children.
