The Love Project is a series of fourteen narrative drawings, each with their own individual story. Placed in each are things I love; pigdogs, pink socks, cupcakes, trap doors, puppets and Roald Dahl’s stories are some examples from a list of 140 items I wrote out at the beginning of this series.

I began this list in my journal as an exercise to define things that I love and to produce something positive in the midst of our sometimes uncertain and chaotic world. By randomly choosing ten from a jar to compose each drawing I was interested to discover how these items would fit together. The combinations of things created narratives that were unexpected and at times seemed not random at all.

Materials: cotton fabric on paper, three-flap folder with tie. Inside: full-colour reproductions of The Love Project.
