A Sense of Place

This piece explores the young evacuees’ life in their adopted homes during World War II. To some, the temporary home was a special place that fostered a sense of belonging. Others felt that it was awful and were eager to return to their parents.  ‘A Sense of Place’ reflects on whether the adopted homes were perceived as special or had a negative effect on the children’s future self identity. The dolls house symbolises the wanted and unwanted children.

The Golden Palace

The Golden Palace was created for the Beyond Boundaries exhibition and looks at the power of the medieval church and the rules and regulations that guided and controlled its followers. The religious leaders/guiders subtly act out the seven deadly sins however, the main sin greed is The Golden Palace itself covered in gold, jewels, keys and other ornate objects such as candlesticks and chalices that mocks and questions the necessities of these luxurious objects for the institution and worship. The overall work was inspired by medieval art particularly the Renaissance altarpieces at the V&A with the aim of the three-dimensional work mirroring the museum’s own carved pieces.

Working the Red Carpet

Working the Red Carpet is a play on the voyeuristic obsession with today's celebrity culture which ridicules the celebrity and fan. 


The six month creation of the piece included researching the history of each monarch, referencing art and costumes from each era, photographing individual people and animals and carefully adding piece-by-piece textiles, illustrations, jewellery, print, feathers, shoes, buttons, armour, swords and crowns to the work.


The work shows bodyguards trying to keep the contemporary crowd at bay and the Kings and Queens from killing each other. The aim of ‘Working the Red Carpet’ was to ultimately gather all the monarchs together into one scene and see how they and the audience would react and whether their egos would get along. 

A who's who guide is available with the piece.
