When I Grow Up

‘When I Grow Up’ is a colourful, playful and tactile body of work, influenced by my childhood. Bright acrylic and wool materials represent a bygone time of play and innocence, while fun and quirky shapes have been extracted from early childhood drawings. The inspiration for the vibrant colours came from a variety of childhood toys, objects, clothing and other mementos. This collection aspires to bring out the inner child in all of us.
