Here's a taster of my work. This piece is 2m long, called Coll (Celtic name for the Hazel). The Ancient Celts believed that the Hazel encourages you to find inspiration in everything, and highlights the value of an enquiring mind and learning. Very appropriate for me at the moment as I am starting a new body of work on a much smaller scale than ever before. Images of my progress will follow.

One of my pieces of work in Curious Drawers is a heart piece made as a response to a little felt handmade heart given to me one Christmas by my youngest niece. It is made up of integrated heart rhythms from generations within the family and is called 'pulling at the heart strings'. I made a companion piece for Heartfelt Bristol http://heartfeltbristol.tumblr.com/. Jan Connet (who was in the BB's a few years ago) has made a video incorporating this piece. Works from BB's Alison and Liz Hewitt were also in the exhibition and in the beautiful heartfelt book which accompanies the project. See it by clicking on this link
