Wayward Women is a body of work created in response to research into female criminals sentenced to transportation from the UK to Australia and Tasmania.
Between 1788 and 1868 approximately 25,000 female convicts were sentenced to transportation, often for petty crimes such as stealing bread.
Inspired by women’s lives and women’s stories, this body of work explores themes of Female Identity, Love, Loss and Hope.
