Inspiration for these pieces is taken from a beautiful flock of around 30 racing pigeons which regularly flies in large circles in the sky around my home. They represent a freedom and otherness that lifts my spirits. I started by exploring the theme using various thicknesses of wire which has a simple and fluid linear quality. I then developed the theme in collage employing paper, painted canvas and other materials to hand. The final collages are stitched together on a machine.
