I love climbing its something I’ve had to fight for being scared of heights & never really trusting myself is not a good recipe for success but I’ve stuck with it & its paid off. I know I will never be brilliant at it but that’s not the point is it ! Women climbers are amazing they have a grace & strength different to men .
I’m gathering photos of climbs that have inspired women climbers, and from these I’m creating collages. I want to celebrate women climbers and encourage new women into climbing. ‘The Cobbler’, in Scotland &’ Dream of White Horses’ North Wales are the first two. I’m on my third which is Yosemite ( not finished yet ) I’m planning to create maybe 10 – 12 collages which I will exhibit around the country at climbing centres and galleries.
I’m calling it ‘The Gorgeous Project‘ and I already have my first place to exhibit at The Reach Climbing Centre, in Woolwich, south-east London. I have a rolling exhibition of work there, and The Gorgeous Project will fit right in.
