Inspiration
This artwork was inspired by Boudicca, ancient warrior Queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe, an important British cultural folk hero. Her name is derived from the word victorious, she led a rebellion to fight the Roman army.

Though she lost her battle and her cause, Boudicca is celebrated today as a national heroine and a universal symbol of the human desire for freedom and justice. She united thousands of ancient Britons, stood up for what she believed in, fought against social injustice; she was known as a pagan queen, an unruly woman and a valiant warrior, this is a celebration of all unorthodox women

Technique
Queen Boudicca (Study In White) was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture and hand drawn illustrations of a horse head and ancient torque.

After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours.
