The first image in this double exposure is a drawing of a blackbird that I did as a child which still sits framed in my dad’s darkroom where all of my film is developed. It amuses me that this drawing has managed to make its way into another piece of my artwork twenty years later. 


The other image of the real blackbird was taken outside of my flat. Blackbirds are my favourite bird and I remember dashing out of the car to photograph this one before it flew away. I love the way these two birds sit side by side in a ‘frame within a frame’. 


This piece marks the evolution of my creativity and I love the way it represents how the core of my passions have remained the same while my techniques and skills have developed. It represents childhood naivety and the changing yet nurturing relationship between a parent and their child as they grow up. It’s one of my personal favourites.
