Shortlisted entry piece for the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award.

This work is based on a miscellaneous drawer discovered at my husbands Grandmothers house. After viewing the contents I felt it gave a beautiful sense of time passing as it included items from both the past and the present; the ordinary and the unexpected. I documented every item in the drawer through tracings, rubbings, drawing and painting and collaged paper items found in the drawer to build up the background.
