My father made the first Peace/C.N.D. badges , I was with him helping him chose which design to use.. as a child prodigy I started painting when I was very young, but have never really been commercial.. but now I want the world to see my art..Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,,|
but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect,
My father was a real Purist,,
he loved simplicity, and black and white,
,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,
many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign
,, the embellishments of all kinds..
so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,
and I worshipped him..
he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ... Gea Austen.
THE FILM ;THE SYMBOL OF PEACE'
I will lose my view of St. Margarets church..where my Mother is buried, David and Mollie Fulford[councillors] told me Torridge District council is corrupt .. what do I do ?
my house is where I've put my name, you can see the sheer mass of building work they are proposing,,this a very quiet residential area, with mainly bungalows,, these flats will be very expensive , and not suited for local people to buy ..
no these Do not fit in !!!!!!the council is corrupt.. two local Torridge district councillors , who I stopped speaking to, eventually rang me up and told me .. they said they had agreed to something very different to what was built,, ??!!.........
View from my kitchen window, and the council want me to fill in a form saying how its effecting me !! this is where they knocked down a beautiful Georgian Captains house, to build three lots of blocks of flats , ...five stories high.. and they won't be cheap !! Each one will be more than an average house in this area...
