'First Step' is an ambitious 9-part painting depicting a Victorian high chair painted on to antique drawers from the Victoria & Albert Museum. It brings forward the question of potential and what the future holds; how precious what we have is and how we can guide that. My more recent works since having children have developed and taken on a more playful aspect. Superimposed over the viewer’s reflection, these motifs, all intensely nostalgic, evoke childhood effectively thrusting one into his or her own past while keeping the immediate present as viewed through the mirror.
