Over the summer holiday’s I was set a project entitled ‘Journey’. The project was to create thirty drawings, paintings, sketches or photo’s of things inspired by the theme ‘Journey’. I decided to record the ‘accidental jewellery’ that I saw along several routes in Liverpool, this could be a chain adorning some gates or a hanging basket bejeweling a house. The one thing that I was drawn to most often were padlocks. I started to become really interested in lovers padlocks particularly as there are so many along the Albert Dock in Liverpool now. I was also really inspired by a couple of bright colours I recorded along the way.
