"I invite you to step through the threshold into my imagination and experience Whiddy Island Light for yourself. Smell the sea, feel the wind and experience a strong sense of place, enjoy the bath while you are there. The scene is influenced by my childhood, fed by my fascination with lighthouses, particularly rock lighthouses and the lives of those brave souls who lived and worked there and more than anything it is flavoured with the mystery and romance of times now past." ~ Suellen Saidee Cook
"This series was born from what was happening in our lives during the compulsory period of self-isolation. I plan for this series to be new images using the same base elements, representing the quirks and whimsies of everyday life as we might experience them during the isolation period." ~ Suellen Saidee Cook
"I hope the image makes you reflect on the beauty and the values we are putting at risk with our greed and desire for material things. Nature is our lifeblood! If this image can make you think about your footprint and demands on this fragile planet and inspire you to make just one change to support its survival, then it is not in vain. I truly hope this metaphoric image does not turn into a prophetic one. Make a difference, NOW, please." ~ Suellen Cook
"I recently read one of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories - 'The Cat that Walked by Himself'. It tells the story of how cats came to be domesticated, that is, as domesticated as cats would ever allow themselves to be. It makes a lot of sense about why cats are the way they are, seemingly aloof and slightly arrogant, but those of us who know cats would not really think that for one minute! To us, they are clever, cunning, lovable, endearing but still very much their own cat. Cats without doubt, Walk by Themselves."
