I am currently in my final year & have been busy preparing for my art practice hand in, which was yesterday. Such a nightmare getting everything ready - I always worry, with a brain that goes 100 miles an hour.
This term my work speaks of family memories. I've incorporated odd bits of ephemera found in my dads old shed and my mums sewing box. These include keys, wire, buttons, fabric scraps & maps.
My dad died in 2012 & my mum is now in a care home & has dementia. It is only in the last few years since dad died that I realise along with his passing, so many stories & so much knowledge has been lost. I think that is why I feel the need to retain as many family memories as I can before they too are lost.
