What is a Memory Box?

To me, a Memory Box is any collection of objects, bits and pieces, treasures and mementos...stuff... 

that is collected and assembled (usually) within a box or container to tell a Story. 

The Stories can be real or imagined.
I combine different objects together in manners that connect through colour, texture, material,

or just juxtaposed into a pleasing visual arrangement of spatial geometry.

For commissions, more often than not, I’m telling your Stories.

 

Usually commissions are based within an event, be it a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or memorial.

I’ve created them as travel diaries, as celebrations of childbirth, and as send-off gifts  for retirees.  I've created film industry "wrap presents", and corporate awards. I’ve even just made arrangements of other peoples favourite stuff, for no reason other than to make  it a touch more precious, and to keep the dusting to a minimum. Because, really... who loves to dust?

 

Every event has a Story; with time and imagination, every Story can be illustrated.

Let me tell your Stories.
