Rupert and his Brother Waiting for Gladys evolved from a vintage black and white photograph. What intrigued me were the differences between the two men, and speculation about why these two men were in a photograph. I chose the colours, materials and scenic details that I felt suited each man and the vintage nature of the setting.

I combine a love of history, and a curiosity about people from the past, capturing character in fabric.
