‘Look the Doll in the Eye’ forthcoming project through Essex Arts Award

IMG_0525

I have just heard that I have been awarded an arts grant from Essex County Council for a project that reflects on women’s self-objectification. I will be making an artist newspaper titled ‘Look the Doll in the Eye’ which will present recent drawings, to be distributed throughout the Eastern region and facilitating a live drawing event at First Site in Colchester. The event will be supported by some drawing workshops with young women to make, amongst other things, life-size ‘paper dressing-up dolls’.
