What is a Memory Box?
A Memory Box is any collection of objects, bits and pieces, treasures and mementos...stuff...
that is collected and assembled often within a vintage box or container to tell a Story, real or imagined.
I combine different objects together in artistic ways that connect through colour, texture, material,
or are simply juxtaposed into a pleasing visual arrangement of spatial geometry.
Every event has a Story; with time and imagination, every Story can be illustrated.
Many a time commissions are event based, be it a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or memorial.
I’ve created them as travel diaries, as celebrations of childbirth, and as send-off gifts for retirees.
I've created film industry wrap presents, and corporate awards.
I’ve even just made arrangements of other peoples favourite stuff, for no reason other than to make it a touch more precious, and to keep the dusting to a minimum.
Because, really...who loves to dust?
