home sweet home
a limited edition artists zine made to be given away free !!!
please click on the image and you will see everything ....I am SO excited about this little element of the installation.The zine is made from an A4 piece of paper which is folded in a certain way to make a cute 8 page book (love it )

see the zine above :)

We travel great distances with our ideas of home.

Metaphorically or physically crossing the sea we take our hopes and dreams and artefacts.

With instinct,intuition and collective experience we create

an idea of home.

All that connects us is our tears ….we are all connected somewhere in the ether, the collective soul of the world.
People will always make romantic interpretations of home, it is central to us all to want to feel at home.
our home is a reflection of our selves.
Home is where the heart is ….

Here are some images from my work in the museum of country life.
It is a temporary installation , and will be gone in a few weeks.
I really enjoyed it , the work made itself as my collection of home related artefacts were perfect for our brief.
The installation is hiding away a little and has to be found but I like that aspect, my work is not loud or easy to read and where it is, suits it perfectly.
I still have books to print from my recent solo show and send of to the lovely people that ordered them (thank you !!)and want to go over to make a film of my show next week ...only 2 weeks left if you still have time to visit it.
