stu­dio 25

I have a real fas­ci­na­tion with su­per­sti­tions so my work is in­spired by cab­i­nets of cu­riosi­ties, pop­u­lar in the Victorian Era. They were pieces of fur­ni­ture that show­cased odd things – an­i­mal spec­i­mens, keys and charms; each one would have had a story or myth be­hind it. I love the sto­ries be­hind pieces of art. My mum’s from York­shire and she’s very su­per­sti­tious and it’s rubbed off on me. If I see a mag­pie, I al­ways do a sly salute.
