Looking at my work area at the end of yesterday it struck me how it resembles a child's play area, just transpose plastic bricks for my lovely rusty collection. In fact my work technique of seeing how things look together is probably no different. It reminded me of my early days of selling my work when a lovely customer put her hand on my elbow looked in to my eyes and said earnestly "aren't you clever", really sweet and flattering and I felt about 7 or 8 years old again. A deep feeling went through me as I realised I'd recreated my childhood and made a career out of it. It felt quite shocking at the time, but, well it's not bad as a lifestyle is it!?
