I believe that to reuse is to uncover what there is to love, and make that shine again and again.
From a young age, I’ve found fascination in forgotten things. Treasures that are unearthed from the back of bureaus, tucked into cabinets, and hidden in drawers. My Mum filled a Chinese cabinet with snippets of Victorian lace, bobbins, buttons, and trinkets. With these I created stories – where had they come from? Was the lace from the hem of a feisty suffragette or the button from a soldier’s coat as a keepsake for his sweetheart?
A first-class degree in Graphic Design and a decade in the commercial and editorial design world later, I’ve never let my curiosity for forgotten things go. Now I collect, create visual stories, and work with my hands; fully embracing the ethos reduce, reuse and recycle. You’ll find me perusing antique fairs (in all weather) to collect lost treasures, which are transformed into Curious Collections where they find a new home.
