My favourite was the bunny…

This is my silver charm bracelet that used to fit me as a child. I used to like looking at it more than wearing it, each charm was bought by my dad when he traveled to a different country. As a baby, I went on the QE2, I can’t remember but the ship charm on the right hand side was bought from that trip and is a tiny replica in silver. I loved it. I’m not sure why I was bought the cat and the dog as I was (and still am ) highly allergic, so not sure what the relevance of those were. I believe I added the silver cross myself when I no longer wore it round my neck (I think the bracelet still fitted me as a teen)

My favourite charm was the rabbit as it had an orange stone for a belly and this fascinated me.

All The Better To See You With

I have recently been making a set of small studies based on the variations in my mental state of mind juxtaposed with childhood fears and the fears associated with being a mother.

Discomfort Part Two

The second part of a series of works I am experimenting with, placing my belongings from a time when I felt secure, in places where I felt most uncomfortable.

Do experiences from childhood have a profound effect on us later in life?

I Left Here….Building Memories

Room

I began with a bunch of memories, as I build my memories into a room, these memories are creating more memories.  I now feel this is destined to remain forever unfinished.

Birthplace

This weekend I returned to Liverpool, the place of my birth for a family party. I also visited the Tate Gallery at the Albert Dock which is a key place in my childhood and holds many memories.
