07 Nov Peace doves not swallows
Doves represent peace and the colour of white makes me think of innocence and purity too. I get asked sometimes why i have doves and its a great opportunity to talk about peace and actively searching for it (hence the green leaf in their mouths that link to the biblical story of Noah’s Ark).
Everything i make whether as public art (cross stitch graffiti, mini protest banners, hidden letters etc) or to wear (belts, badges, keyrings etc) I want it to make people think and ask questions so we can have interesting discussions about social justice and peace. So if you see me with my doves on – now held by Gaffer tape on the back:( – I hope you say hello and have a chat with me about how we can aim for peace in the world.
