In the past couple of years, I started gardening. It’s absolutely wonderful to see how everything grows in this country. So I decided to recreate the exact same plants I have in my garden, but in paper. Fuchsias, geraniums, a spider plant, tulips, calendulas, dahlias, orchid, lavender. And of course the tools: gloves, a watering can, trowel, mini secateurs and spades.
The box is 23x23cm so the flowers are very small, it’s all handmade.

I was approached by Emergency Exit Arts, a community-focused arts group, to participate in a project alongside several other artists. Our mission was to create and deliver ideas for the Newham Carnival 2017. We spent a couple of days designing the main features and preparing the materials we would need to deliver the workshops. Having developed our ideas, throughout June we visited primary schools across the borough to help children bring alive our designs for the Carnival. We worked in different groups with specific designs relating to Rio, New Orleans, Venice, and Trinidad & Tobago. Each team had different colours, schemes and themes. The children we met with were from a range of backgrounds, each bringing different ideas to the workshops. It was brilliant to see the range of cultural references in the designs.
This project gave me great experience of working at scale, using a range of different materials, such as plastic, card and paper mache. I helped with one of the floats working on a crown for a massive king’s head. I also developed my ability to work with a diverse group of young people and inspire them to explore their creativity.

When I was a child, I was convinced one day I was going to wake up with wings. I wanted to fly away from the house I was living. I guess it is a common dream when you grow up in a “not ideal” home.

We are all part of the land. We will go back there after all and we will become trees eventually.
