What had started off as a working holiday turned into a gap year, and then kept going, with a university degree entering the non-plan. After exploring some of Europe and just a little of what is further afield, The Suitcase Suite came about in the year 2000. I didn’t settle down that year either, but who wants to start a millenium feeling immobile?
The careful pencil drawings are mounted on a collage made from a cut-up atlas.
My favourite is Suitcase #2 (ghost of a suitcase inside a suitcase), a life drawing of a suitcase my grandparents had given me. It took me a whole 9 hours to draw it, but I remember it was a bright weekend in Wales and the hours flew by as the light faded.
