My Nonsense Icons are objects to contain Myths.

I think of the Owl and the Pussycat as a great symbolic love story directing us to the most important things in life; as well as it being a connection to childhood.

In the construction of my Icons I use lino printing on painted wood; cut and painted aluminium or copper; painted or scratched graffiti; and sometimes digital prints created on a computer.

The Icon form with opening and closing door panels enables me to mix text and image in a way that I hope surprises and delights the viewer.
