From a young age I’ve found fascination in forgotten things. Treasures that are unearthed from the back of bureaus, tucked into cabinets and hidden in drawers. My Mum filled a Chinese cabinet with snippets of Victorian lace, bobbins, buttons and trinkets. With these I created stories – where had they come from? Was the lace from the hem of a feisty suffragette or the button from a soldier’s coat as a keepsake for his sweetheart?
A first-class degree in Graphic Design and a decade in the commercial and editorial design world later, I’ve never let my curiosity for forgotten things go. Now I collect, create visual stories and work with my hands; fully embracing the ethos reduce, reuse and recycle. You’ll find me perusing antiques fairs (in all weather) to collect lost treasures, which are transformed into Curious Collections where they find a new home.
For something truly personal and one of a kind, you can commission your own Memory Box with personal artefacts from you and your loved ones. Capture a moment in time that goes beyond a beloved photograph. Together we can bring these treasured processions out of hiding in a box and into a space where it can raise a smile every day. You can discover some Memory Boxes I’ve created here.
If you have any questions or would like to work with me on creating your own Memory Box I’d love to hear from you.
