'Yellow roses', 2019 

I liked the light on the mantelpiece in my childhood room and fetched some flowers to pose in it. I wanted the roses to look like they could be easily picked out or even topple out of the jug. I also did it for the colour combination of the yellow, blue and black square - diagonally down from the jug, the jug slightly off centre. This felt like the right position for all the objects and then the bending shadow.
