Inspiration: I’m not much of a chocolate fan, but I love sweets. Give me a pack of Jelly babies and I could eat the lot. Give me a toffee, some fudge or a wine gum and I’m happy. I have fond memories of childhood sweets too. Jelly tots, Dolly mixture, Spangles and Opal fruits (now called Starburst, but will always be opal fruits to me). I used to love the vivid pink colour of the wham bar in the 1980’s. Imagine all those E numbers and additives in there! Fruit salads, Black jacks, sherbert dips, Fruiti tutti, Flying saucers.

I also love an old fashioned sweet shop. Shelves crammed with glass jars full of bon bons, aniseed balls and gobstoppers.

My new series is inspired by these childhood memories of brightly coloured sweets in the days when additives and colouring was allowed!
