Mental Health and the statistics being discussed on Look North last night. Really inspiring to listening to Nick and Sophie share their stories. The impact art has in supporting individuals diagnosed with mental illness. 
It was quite rewarding to see my work in the foreground only in the context that I feel very passionate about art therapy within the treatment of mental health and emotional connection it reveals.

I am currently researching ideas for new work whilst finishing of my collection of Satin Pocket Books. My love of books has inspired my work in the past and I find myself revisiting areas of development.

Exploring the musical life of Mary Frances Heaton and her struggles with mental health 1837-1878. Satin pocket books reflect her connection to high society and education, hand stitched love letters and samplers  express her opinions and gave Mary a voice which has created facinating a insight to her and the social history of the West Riding Pauper & Lunatic Asylum.
