I was recently interviewed for a new feature from Decorazon Gallery, where they explore the motivation, inspiration & background of their artists.
"I feel very fortunate that I come from a creative family.
My parents' house is full of delftware, old books, broken pots and flotsam and jetsam, things salvaged off skips, and handmade gifts.
My father is a cabinet maker and I loved spending time in his workshop discovering secret drawers and compartments in the beautiful old bureaus and desks he was restoring."
"My grandmother Keyna Emerson is also a painter. She attended the Slade School of Art in London just before and just after the second world war, and continues painting, though her dream was to be a set designer. I’ve been thinking of this a lot, whilst looking through her books on set and costume design and making my own theatre maquettes."
