I am one of nine artists to have produced work that has been printed large scale for ‘The Beginnings of that Freedome’, a Banner Exhibition in Westminster Hall as part of the ‘Parliament in the Making’ 2015 Historic Anniversaries programme.This includes marking the 800 years of the sealing of the Magna Carta and 750 years since the De Montfort Parliament. Each of us were given two themes connected to Acts passed since Magna Carta. Mine were the 1897 founding of the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies (Women’s Equality) and the 1965 Race Relations Act (Racial Equality). More on my work on this project here .

The NUWSS Banner will now be held between The Women’s Institute and The National Football Museum, and the Race Relations Act Banner has been gifted to the School of Law, Leeds University.
