Her Arts Council awarded Magna Carta Women project, depicting women and men that paved the way for women’s rights, toured England as part of the Magna Carta celebrations in 2015. Hysterical Females, an experimental film exploring discrimination against Edwardian women, screened at events and art galleries marking the centenary of women’s suffrage in 2018.
She has a Master's in Communication Design from Norwich University of the Arts and a BA (Hons) in Illustration from University of Plymouth. She is currently a virtual artist in residence at North Lincolnshire Museum, exploring different methods of storytelling within a museum setting. She is also attending a mentorship programme with Collusion and Norwich University of the Arts to explore new digital technologies within her practice.
Working the Red Carpet looks at thevoyeuristic obsession with today's celebrity culture and explores the relationship between the celebrity and the fan. The artwork includes the kings and queens of Britain from Alfred the Great to Elizabeth II.
The work took six months to create by researching the history of each monarch, referencing art and costumes from each era, photographing individual people and animals and carefully adding piece-bypiece textiles, illustrations, jewellery, print, feathers, shoes, buttons, armour, swords and crowns to create the costumes. In the scene bodyguards try to keep the contemporary crowd at bay and the Kings and Queens from killing each other.
Working the Red Carpet gathers the English monarchs together in one room and reimagines how they and the contemporary audience would react and whether they would get along with each other.
