Quite Unsuitable for Females

I create work inspired by my local environment, the people I know and the communities that I feel connected to. I draw attention to what is overlooked; the unseen history that echoes in our lives and the beauty and colour that often goes unnoticed. This project is based around the girls football team that I work with.  The title of the project comes from the Football Association statement of 1921 which banned women's football ( a ban that was not lifted until 1971). Among other things it stated that “the game of football is quite unsuitable for females and should not be encouraged”.
