Artist's description:

Digital collage print. Inspired by finding a way to represent what home means to me I created a floral motif for each of the major cities I've lived in over the past 15 years - the passion fruit is Brisbane to me. Using vintage botanical illustrations as a starting point I created the flowers out of security envelope lining and put them together with an image of a plate to product little chintz images of home.

Comforts of Home Series:
Having spent a significant portion of my life travelling these works explore what home means to me through the use of different floral and bird motifs. Each flower symbolises a home city from the past few years. The passion fruit to me is Brisbane, Sydney the frangipani, London a rose and Wellington a Kawhai. The birds seen in the chintz paper 'fabric' represent these three countries of Australia, England and New Zealand. Using antique illustrations as a starting point I recreated the flowers and birds from security envelope lining, grouping them together to form a chintz 'fabric' pattern. These elements then formed the base for a paper patchwork with additional pieces of security envelopes and the patterns to decorate the ceramic plates.
