My Part In Her Story

Herstory my part

I’ve been teasing you with snippets of a collaboration I’ve been working on with graffiti artist, Unity. We talked around some ideas and came up with the subject of Herstory to develop something for the International Women’s Day exhibition at Swansea’s Cinema & Co. We made a list of women who inspire our creativity and I researched them to come up with some visuals. Unity started the ball rolling by drawing the lettering and spraying the first layer of paint onto a large canvas and then it came over to me – Unity lives in the next city.

I had gone through a few different approaches to the images of these women – collaging, painting, screenprinting, but I finally decided to scribble them, well I would, wouldn’t I? I used mostly sanguine conté crayon with a little white here and there for highlights. I wanted them to emerge softly from the background rather than dominate the picture, because that’s how inspiration works for me. And now it’s gone back to Unity to finish. I’m really excited, I don’t know what to expect!


International Women’s Day at Cinema & Co, Swansea, March 8th, 18.00 – 20.30 – or later if we’re still rocking the bar! With 30 artists plus film, performance, music and a Pakistani pop-up kitchen. And Cake!
