She is precious to me. She is perhaps myself as a young girl, finding herself pregnant. I also felt at the time that she represented the burgeoning creativity in me as I fixed my determination to be an artist. I created her in Ortonovo in Italy in 1984 in the upstairs room of our little house. My dream was to cast her in bronze, and one day we ventured to Pietrasanta where the great foundries were. I had only the courage to peer in the doors then because I had no money then to spare. She was cast in bronze a few years later in Melbourne and was my first significant bronze.
