I bought myself an old fashioned Dutch style bicycle - I have always wanted one of these - ever since a trip to Amsterdam in the early 8o's. Having no front brake and only a back-pedal brake is taking a bit of getting used to but it is a joy to ride.
"Mandy Prowse studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone College of Art. She explores natural and human forms and the interconnectedness of all things. Themes in her work relate to birth, mortality and metamorphosis. Her altered books are minimalistic and organic combining a modern aesthetic with an almost Victorian touch. If you told me these books were 100 years old I wouldn’t think twice about it.”
