    Amazing work, Margot. So creative.

  • This is another one that came together when scraps fell out of the box just so. Odd how that happens…unconscious creativity!? Many thanks, Tori!

    Really quite frightening – the ‘mask’ and defacing lines hit a vague Hannibal Lector chord.
    - Stark and strong – fantastic title.

  • One never know what lurks in the scrap box! Big Thank You, Sharon!

    Maya would be proud to have her words used in such a reflective creation. That eye tells me there is much to reveal and dispose of: memory prisons, feathers and childhood dresses… Some cage we build for ourselves! But following on from your next work… we have our hacksaws out don’t we? Just a few more bars to go…. :-)

  • Maya’s books should be mandatory reading, in my humble opinion!
    I will leave the prison, singing, but take the feathers along … may need them in another life.
