Commissioned artwork for a farewell-gift to Frances Valintine, the CEO of Media Design School. I decided to wander around and ask those here who know her best to tell me about her… her personality and her character, her many abilities and attributes as a leader. These conversations lured me into a  ‘dream-like’ land where I saw the future as a metaphor represented by the closing of an eye and the opening of a new door. The harlequin’s collar expresses majesty and the abilities of a leader while the new land of infinite possibilities is represented in the chair where Frances can reach her highest aspirations with the elegance, poise and far-reaching stretch of the ballerina.
