I spent several weeks sitting with and drawing, the elderly residents of a Kilburn Care Home.

Wanting to push my drawings further I began for the first time, to work in three dimensions and produced this series of slightly less than life size papier mache forms.

Working in three dimensions has since become my preferred method of expression.

'It is an exhibition that is not a pleasing sight, but it is, nevertheless, a must to see for its honesty, its ability to grip the heart, and its awareness of suffering.'

1975 Art critic's comment of exhibition, 'Images of Old Age'.
