How did you make this work:
A "Ewe Lamb" is defined as being a "single greatly prized possession", I collated these stories building a catalogue of personal folklore, documenting the items. Handling the stories that people very kindly shared with me felt very sentimental and reflects what I think love is! How it is held in these objects, their stories and their keepers. I worked with charcoal and ink, digitally collaging.
