Feminine Pursuits

This series of embroideries questions the unfair negative preconceptions of 'feminine pursuits', namely needlework and cosmetics and asks why both have been collapsed into a stereotype of femininity characterised as mindless, decorative and devoid of significant meaning

Here I use the language of drag makeup and aspects of devotional stitching found in worship to take a different slant on prescribed gender
