A new body of work concentrating on the ties that bind us. Inherited genetic makeup associated with what we do, our interests and motivations.
I come from a family of makers.
Paternally I have boat builders, marine engineers, mechanics, blacksmiths, builders and constructors.
Maternally it was feminine work of seamstresses, uphostery, cooking, nursing, care work and running a house.
I love problem solving, counting, measuring, noticing coincidences and patterns. My starting point is my ancestry from which point I can expand. I use these intuitive skills to create and pass onto the next generation.

working with prints and drawings of mine Poppy has taken it a stage further and applied her magic.
Strangely this one looks like a tatoo and is inspired by a map of the ancient land I grew up on and a print of the back of my hand. froma work titled 'I know my love like the back of my hand'
These patterns pieces are for an anatomical heart. I have used amateur dressmakers pattern style to symbolise the love my mother would pour into everything she did for us.
