On December 1st 2019, the day after we left our family farm I drove to Scotland for the first time, to
Marchmont House. I was totally lost and bereft losing our family home full of family history, so I thought
what better thing to do than start a new adventure.
Billfox and I set off in my VW transporter arriving at Marchmont house after a stay at Tbay services. I
remember gasping as I turned in the drive and saw the house for the first time.
I’ve been preparing for this one. Possibly all my life. A wonder cape with super power, a sanctuary,
portal of energy, a place to recharge, to listen to the earth, breathe, discombobulate, to connect with our
authentic selves ... a vessel in which to be protected, celebrated, lifted.... spiritually connected and
authentic. But this time for reasons I could never have imagined - how the world has changed.
In April 2020 I drove North to @marchmonthouse
to finalise the concept, title and details of ‘The Cape of Creative
It’s been an exciting life changing risk, mission of passion and a huge investment for Hugo Burge so it
must be so satisfying for him and his wonderful team to see such a creative buzz forming.
Campaign and contract written and completed, agreement signed, excited and happy! It was time to begin.
As I said back then, ⠀⠀
“So now the hard work begins ... one layer at a time ... process by process. Here we go .... a magical
wearable celebratory artwork - inspiration, photography, drawing, music and materials... preparation of the
mind and the studio ... 💥imperative 🤘🏼💫💥⚡️"
Little did I know what was around the corner.
