The discovery of some vintage papers in a scrapbook was the starting point of creating these works. The paper has a suede-like feel and the edges are slightly discoloured with age. Each of the pieces seemed to suggest different ways of working, my approach began by applying white acrylic paint and then coloured inks after wetting the paper slightly. It took time to add each layer, patiently waiting for drying time...I have a reverence and keen interest in using asemic writing in my work - script-like marks which are unreadable but suggest ideas of text. Some of the pieces use collage elements which I have painted and cut.
These Timeless Moments pieces are titled after favourite phrases in poems by TS Eliot.

I am entranced by vintage papers - the small folds and torn edges tell of touch by many hands, what secrets or surprises could they hold? Some of the text or lines add intriguing marks on the surface and my colours, inks and paints are made with intent and thoughts. Unreadable text, known as asemic writing, adds a layer of additional marks which provides more visual connections for us to ponder. These pieces are titled after favourite phrases in poems by TS Eliot. Each work is initialed on the front and signed on the reverse side.
