Shazia - Edie - Canvas On Board
I remember one summer's day being taken to the park with my father and sisters. The Queen was celebrating her Silver Jubilee and was making an appearance in the grounds of the park. My father was holding my big sister’s hand and I held on to my others sister's hand as we crossed to the other side, towards the park. When we arrived we were greeted with a hive of activity and my father was worried we would become separated in the crowd so he found a quiet spot where we waited for the arrival of the Queen. Whilst waiting my two eldest sisters, myself and younger sister began to make daisy crowns on the lawn and began to drift further and further away from the crowd. My eldest sister was the first to complete her crown so she sat there, quite smugly, like the Queen herself watching the rest of us struggle. 'Edie' is based on the memory of my eldest sister, the daisy crown placed around her forehead hinting to her status as ‘Big Sis’ .
