Diamonds Are Forever, qbe insurance, 2018

This piece is based on the history of engagement rings. In the 1920s, they could be used as a form of insurance for many women; for example if their partner decided to split they could claim ‘Breach of Promise to Marry’ and receive damages for their losses. By reclaiming and re-designing those same shiny hoops with imagery inspired by De Beers’ ‘A Diamond Is Forever’ campaign, this installation focuses on how today in 2018, rings, the concept of marriage and the position of women have changed. Women now work and thrive in male-dominated sectors and are increasingly their own source of security. In a way, this idea is a homage to women and how far we have come in the last 50 years.

I illustrated the last page of the book 'A Galaxy of Her Own: Amazing Stories of Women in Space', telling stories of inspirational women in space, from scientists to astronauts. My illustrations depicts how the first person on Mars could very well be a female astronaut!
