Due to the death of a friend at the beginning of this project my inspiration for Transformation came from the story of the circle of life and how some of us aren’t fortunate enough to experience a full lifespan. I researched into ideas such as The Four Seasons, The Hungry Caterpillar & The Ugly Duckling which I then chose as the story I wished to tell through my work. I therefore looked into the structure of feathers and incorporated this patterning into my work along with the signature colours of a cygnet and swan. The progression of the colours show how a cygnet’s life is short lived before transforming into a beautiful swan.
Because this piece begun at the death of my friend Amie I decided that the intention for this piece would be a wall hanging in a church as a remembrance of loved ones.
