'Not From The Stork'

About this project

Kate’s adoption and journey to find her birth mother, is the inspiration for the works she will be exhibiting this year.
My collection is called ‘Not From The Stork,’ she explains. It came from spotting a piece of graffiti near Brick Lane in London. It was a picture of a Stork on vintage wallpaper, I photographed it, and later when I got home, I sketched a version of it. It’s an image that stuck in my mind. I decided it was the right time in my life to find my birth family
