Tell us about the specific inspiration behind one or each of your accepted pieces.
I was doing a piece for a friend on ‘BEAUTY’ and it occurred to me that the beautiful may not always be “Beautiful”. Like the broken pottery that is held together with gold, a Japanese Art of Kintsugi which values breakage and imperfections. According to Wikipedia, “As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.”

fēlan is old English for feel. What makes you feel fascination?
Fascination springs from the intrigues that little scenes bring my way, like the wonders of childbirth, the unfolding of petals, the sprouting of new seeds – these and more keep me in awe. The constant amazement at life itself and daily occurrences put me in a place of wanting to discover what’s behind the curtains. I guess, I love the blood-rush.
