This body of work contains objects contained in rooms, contained in a house contained in a landscape. People have made an appearance in some of the works and hint at some domestic drama or other.

As a quilter, my dear Mother pieces together coloured, patterned cotton materials. Lucky recipients have an object created with love, time, artistic and mathematical decision-making. These paintings reference the bringing together of scraps or remnants to create a harmonious design but with the spontaneous freedom that paint and ink allow.

Of course the colours must star- the yellow will show off, the orange glow, the Payne’s grey stabilise and anchor, the hot pink sing, the objects call and respond to each other through shape and pattern, light and shadow.
