One of my first blogs was about the photo that has always inspired me and helped me set and stick to my style.
It is this photo of my Mum and me. It was taken by my Uncle on the steps of our front door. It's not just a photo, it's a memory, and it makes me smile everytime I walk past it. The door is open and I can see the wallpaper of our home. I can also smell the wood polish and incense and hear the record player playing Pink Floyd. This is Mum, the way I remember her, a cool lady, who did things her own way, including letting her only little girl go around topless in boy shorts. She died of cancer in her mid thirties and these photos are really special to me.
I also have studio photos of Mum and me. We are dressed in our best clothing, sitting against a brown background with forced smiles on our faces. These are stuck in an album somewhere, and they do make me laugh because we look really uncomfortable and crazy eyed.
