From imagination. Design incorporating a text of my own composition: The Fronds of my Heart shall unfurl towards the Sunshine of Your Love. The idea of the paper fan unfurling suggested the unfurling fronds of a fern, which in turn suggested the 'fronds' of the human heart opening up towards the warm sunshine of love.

This piece was also inspired by the Valentine's theme of many of the scissor-cuts of Elizabeth Cobbold (1731-1801), who lived in my hometown of Ipswich, Suffolk.
