"I know Ken through work and one day he told me about his project. After seeing the works he already had I knew I wanted to do a huge fabric flower based on a poppy. My great auntie Clara was an artist and when she painted a flower that didn’t look like any real flower she called it ‘pedula'."Bernis Emmett
