"This work is inspired by my unconditional love and admiration for my Nan. As a nurse, she moved from the city to marry a farmer. In respect for this challenging transition, I have drawn using graphite pencil onto three photographic compositions of a collection of my Nan’s nursing documents. Drawing from three recognisable photographs of my Nan taken when she first moved onto the farm, I aim to represent the change from Nursing to farm life that she underwent. The first drawing shows Nan on her wedding day, the second driving the tractor and the third looking after puppies."
