My work is about the items I collect as I travel and live in different places. Each holds a wedge of memories for me and looking at an item evokes sights and sounds and smells, memories of the place and the people. The burqa was bought in a scruffy suburb of Amman in Jordan. Tied in with my delight at finding such a perfect and interesting mask was a sadness for the woman who had sold it. It holds her memories as well as mine.
