Comforts of Home Series:
Having spent a significant portion of my life traveling 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 birds represent a different country, the Tui is 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 ceramic plates.
