Residence at The University of Birmingham from 2012-13.
With a studio on campus, she spent her time across the University’s diverse museum collections, from The Barber Institute of Fine Arts to The Lapworth Museum of Geology. Using drawings and recorded conversations as a starting point, she developed a series of comic book narratives that explore a set of characters that have connections with the University. The stories are almost entirely quoted from text that comes directly from archive material or conversations with staff. They were published this month in the graphic novel The Mermaid and the Lion. The original drawings are exhibited at the Bramall Music Building and signed copies of the book are available to buy at The Barber Institute of Fine Arts shop.
