Inspired by the beautiful old doors assembled by Iona's farmer father to protect his newborn lambs from the elements, the Secret Door Collection evolved from an arts series made during a Spring spell in the lambing shed.

Fruits of the Scottish elements, the series interprets the rusting, crackling, decaying beauty, and the honest purpose of the doors. The delicate, tactile surface sensitive to their purpose as a sheild for the precious lives behind.

Mystery, intrigue and discovery form the foundations for so many design concepts. Inspired by exploration and challenged perceptions with a sprinkling of satire.  

Why would you adorn the walls of a dark, eerie basement space with tactile, whimsical wallpaper inspired by an entanglement of secret garden hose pipes.... Then again, why wouldn't you?

The mid point in a project. Dust casting a veil over every surface, plaster encrusted on your favourite old trainers and energy levels flagging. Like any half way juncture in a momentous endeavour - although it may involve a little imagination and a push of the pause button - clutching a window to breath it all in, reflect on the evolution and bask in the glory of what's soon to unfold, well, it's a precious, fleeting moment.
