This series of work is inspired by the heavy demands upon 21st century women, particularly those who work and have children. However, the pieces serve as a positive illustration of this, primarily through the use of a bright, colourful palette and their whimsical nature.  However, behind the circus-like cheerfulness and theatrical lighting, there is an underlying seriousness and an acknowledgement of the 'acts' that women sometimes have to perform to get through life.
