My Silky is a very personal work. It is made from archival collage materials and features a photograph from early 1970s of a close up of my mouth, sucking my thumb. The collage came together of its own. I felt drawn to using the pink silky satin and then found this photo of my mouth. It fitted perfectly and embodies my habit as a little girl of sucking my thumb, whilst holding "My Silky," a piece of silky cloth, at the same time.
