Developing a series of works is an interesting journey.

Working in this way with a theme or an image, can produce work that contains a lot more depth than working on a range of dissimilar subjects.

A case in point is the clothing series that I began working on recently. I began with dresses in a wardrobe. The dresses emerge out of the darkness into view. They tantalize our thoughts to tease out their story. In fact they began to take on a life of their own quite early on in the piece.
