I love history, but recently I have been drawn to fictional people and narratives. Women have been the main focus in my practice, so I was excited to explore the portrayal of women in fairytales.
I loved creating these and plan to grow the collection in the future, maybe looking at Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Goldilocks.
The five piece collection is a limited edition of 7 and prints are available to purchase from Artfinder.

The Manacled Mannequins is based on the Twelve Dancing Princesses, who escape every night to dance. They are eventually discovered and the eldest daughter is made to marry an old soldier. In my version the daughters are trapped as dolls in a never-ending wheel, with the freedom to dance but can never leave.
