Tell us a little about your piece?

Two years ago I walked along the Costa Brava with my family from Blanes to France. I think it’s one of my biggest adventures and I wanted to base my project on it. The Costa Brava has a path which was used originally by the coastguard but which is now a part of the Gran Recorridos (grand routes), a network of long distance footpaths across Europe. The one we followed was the GR92. All along the path there are beautiful coves, or ‘calas’ in Catalan. My piece is inspired by the colours and forms of this stunning landscape.  


What was the most challenging part of the brief?

I was moving between houses whilst working which was quite a challenge. We have just left Spain and had to quarantine when arriving in the UK. I was working with  the materials I was able to bring with me and at the dining table of my friend’s house and subsequently in my parents living room! 


What part of the collaboration did you enjoy the most?

It was an absolute privilege (and a real responsibility) to receive the book with the previous artists’ work and to be able to contribute my own interpretation. It has been so exciting to be part of a project which involves so many different artists and see the different way each of us has responded to the same brief.


How did you enjoy working with the ErgoKiwi handle?

The handle is a beautiful object and very comfortable to hold and work with. It was interesting to work with something different from the tools I usually use.
