Acrylic, Spray Paint and Conte

I’ve been having great chats over the phone with my father about our family history and more recently about his mother Enid, who made camouflage nets in New Zealand during WW2. Enid was one of the many female volunteers who carried out an activity for the war effort.

In my work, I considered the connection of my grandmother making camouflage nets to help protect her family fighting a war on the other side of the world and connected cherished landscapes from my memories of New Zealand and Australia, where I have spent just over half of my lifetime in each.
