I love and am proud to work for the Foundling Museum which I think is one of the most important museums in London. It is a place of heartbreak, sadness and hope. It is a beacon of how important the arts are for changing lives.
Even though I am used to being there amongst its paintings and objects telling their silent stories, occasionally I still get overwhelmed. This work done with the children of Thomas Coram Nursery, inspired by Tom Railton (the Museum’s 2014 Artist- In -Residence) brought tears to my eyes. As you look at their Sky Marbles you hear their voices talking about why they have made toys for the foundling children, and what types and colours of weathers they have in the marble they have made.
