One thing leads to another. The year 2018 marked the 100th anniversary when some women and all men gained the vote in the UK. I began to explore a few of the eminent women associated with Reading. My journey with them continued over the years as the figures led to new adventures. I'm now up to 20, each with their own story. Many are making an appearance in the book Reading's Influential Women published by Two Rivers Press. I had the fantastic experience of how another designer made best use of my linocut illustrations, and that in turn influenced this selection of work.
