Not To Scale
A time travelling exploration into celebrating the lost voices and forgotten lives of Birmingham women throughout history.
Based on the story of Joan Boggis, a woman who (as a young girl) worked in a munitions factory building bombs during WW2. She was taken there on a bus at night, and never knew the location - or even what her part of the manufacturing process was. 'Skulk' is a glimpse into this part of her life, reimagined on a night when unexpected snow falls, using research surrounding blackouts in Britain.

Every year, I produce a Remembrance installation exhibition for Armistice Day, based on Institute Road in Kings Heath. In 2020, this focused on 8 women related to members of the local community; sharing their portraits and stories with the public as well as images found from archives and history books. Each photograph was printed onto aluminium, with their stories engraved into silhouettes alongside them. The installation was unveiled during the Remembrance service where members of the public gathered to pay their respects and light candles for those lost but not forgotten..
