This was one of the portraits I exhibited at my final MA show in Bonington Gallery. There were four portraits in total which are now permanently exhibiting at Nottingham Trent University. The MA programme itself was very intense and over a period of 6 months I made over 100 portraits of women both singular and in groups. Furthermore, I officially interviewed 32 individuals totalling approximately 48,000 words, which helped form my final research field notes.
