Her work ranges from traditional prints and drawings on paper, to intricate sprawling books and fold out paper sculptures and as commissions for merchandise, print for theatres and games. I saw her exhibition in early 2010 at the Red Door Gallery in Edinburgh whom commissioned 'Alice's Aviary' and since have collected many of her books and cards in lieu of originals which I currently cannot afford. Simply, I love it!
It brings back so many memories both of time I spent in Edinburgh, where I met Wriggles' father and also the time I spent both on my foundation and degree course. Like anytime as a young(er) person, I grumped about it at time but looking back I had a ball. Where else can you spend four years solidly playing with glitter or taking sock puppets to lectures? We were all tortured artists, even if we vehemently believed otherwise, and the run out to our own degree show was one of the most stressful periods of my life. Completely different to parenthood, but very driven and full of passion. A little taste of adult life to come.
