Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

baby in the bag, my first contact with surrealism? flowers at the cemetery under glass domes, my first garden, mud, the treadle sewing machine, the sweet smell of daphne, holding on to memories, old clothes, dress ups, love of music, old records, dancing, making and losing things. leaving, the misfit, humour, drawing, photography, living in studio spaces, 'je ne regrette rien', the collection of objects for the security they provide, (too many episodes of Steptoe and Son?) sculpture, the clutter of existence, my chickens, using tools, growing things - and living a life in earnest.
