No-one to Bestow was originally exhibited as part of the 2012 E17 Art Trail, and the inspiration came from the theme for the Art Trail, Bestow. For his own Art Trail exhibition, my friend Fabien decided to follow the Bestow theme and photographed Walthamstow residents with a cherished object bestowed to them, and he photographed me with the beautiful wooden doll's house my Grandfather made for me when I was a little girl. I started to think about the doll's house, and how as I grew up I'd always imagined I would pass it on to a daughter. I realised that as I don't have children I have no-one to leave my things to. I have always wanted to have children, though at the age of 42 I realise this is increasingly unlikely, and this is something I'm trying to come to terms with.
