"RhymeZine is an attempt to find purpose & structure in these lockdown days. We asked individuals to respond to the concept 'STACKED' and included here are artworks, poems, images, drawings and photographs that respond to this theme in a variety of ways."

RhymeZine has also been submitted for an upcoming show of artists responses to the pandemic at Royal Scottish Academy Edinburgh.

The drawing was also exhibitied in Exeter at the Glorious Arthouse as part of their Summer Exhibition 24th July- 15th September 2020.

During Lockdown in May and June 2020. I hosted a five week Maternal Journal course over zoom. Working with a group of eleven we had a precious weekly connection with the outside world. This course was part of a year long pilot project for Devon produced by Lizzy Humber at Mothers who make.

In July 2019 I ran a day workshop in at Artspace Exeter. In collaboration with the Birth Project, by Katie Villa, I invited mothers to come and make drawings about their experiences of motherhood. The drawings were exhibited alongside the embroideries from STITCH and specially commissioned photos of mothers in their workspaces, by Viola De. This exhibition ran for a week.
