In 2019 I was selected to create an artwork for the world-renowned Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. The commission was for a local artist to interpret a chosen Shakespeare quote into an artwork, promoting their Winter season programme, which was to be displayed along their Bankside entrance by the river. The quote, ‘I love this place and willingly could waste my time in it’ from Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ gave me many ideas, but I decided to focus on the immediate surroundings and the historical significance of it, using a centuries old art form often used for book illustration- wood engraving. You can read more about the work and my process behind it on the Globe's official blog.
