“I actually buy most of my clothes from charity shops, so I wanted to design a light-weight scarf that would jazz up my charity wardrobe. It had to be ethically sourced. This has been very important to me, so it has taken sometime to find the correct material with a lot of back and fourth. Initially I went for a recyclable polyester. That changed to a sustainable lyocell, but then switched to 100% cotton satin. The design is punk in nature and reflects my artwork and probably a throw back, as I’m a child of the 70’s. So I took one of my Black Money prints and arranged the pattern in a repeated layout, as if the money had been scattered. The Fifty Guinea scarf is a fun accessory and makes for a good conversation. My question: What value do we place on ourselves, on money, and on what we are told? I like to make art that helps us to question, to go deeper. It’s art on a scarf”
