work in progress

The buttons on cards came from the Mercat Del Encants market in Barcelona - they followed me to Oxford, then to London and finally to Sydney after waiting many months in boxes. Slowly, slowly they're finding their way onto artworks.

I wished I worked in a dedicated studio environment but I don't. My studio is the kitchen table or the sofa. All my bits and pieces get tidied away into plastic bags at the end of each session.

But don't the colours in this mix of paper look good together? I found the Latin handwriting as wrapping paper in Rome, made photocopies and coloured it. And 10 years later I found the same paper in a shop in Sydney!
