Women of Heritage is a multi-layered project which commenced earlier in the year. It initially began as an exploration into my own cultural identity, from visually depicting and interpreting characteristics, domestic roles and the spiritual beliefs and practices which connected women in my family (including myself) to their cultural heritage, from both the traditional and contemporary associations and disconnections.

The format as to how these are being represented is through portraits and masks,  with each utilising a range of mediums, cultural motifs and decorative designs. Below are some works in progress demonstrating these processes;
