This was commissioned as a gift - and was most imaginatively and beautifully crafted and presented. It's a pebble from Anafi, with a quotation from an Australian journalist who went there in 1938 to witness the life of political exiles on the island. He described a night arrival, with the island looming above "like some hulking hippopotamus standing quietly in the water". The grey domed pebble is inscribed with this text. I thought it was wonderful and the recipient was delighted!

So wonderful to work with and the stone and packaging are exceptional. This is a wonderful gift for my son.
I would give this even more stars if it were possible! The marble blocks of the temple of Apollo are echoed in the lines on the stone; and the presentation box is truly beautiful.
One derivation of the name of 'my' island is that it means 'no snakes'. This pebble plays with this idea - altho the sinuousness of the stone belies the assertion! A thought-piece as well as being beautiful to handle.
writing as an object
Trained as a historian and having lived in libraries and archives for many years I have become fascinated with written words: their many and changing meanings and the material technologies that make them possible.
Papers, pens, ink, nibs, writing cases, stationery, paper clips and pencils - all objects that surround the act of writing - have their stories; assembled they bring their stories together - they "fall into place" to tell a visual wordless story about the world of words.
In Inklinks I draw from my extensive collection of antique stationery and writing supplies to create objects that like to live between books in a home library or writing desk. Some of my canvases are stones I collect in my travels, others are wood from antique writing slopes. Stones are nuggets of compressed time as are words and texts: the mixed media objects I create are fusions of the constant and the ephemeral.
The collection of mixed media objects, assemblages and commissions as well as more information about my work can be found in my website
