For this digital commission for Assembly House I created illustrated GIFs of women from Leeds's history, who have made huge contributions to the city. I chose:
 

  • Nicola Adams, a black, female boxer, and the first openly LGBT person to win an Olympic boxing Gold medal.

  • Leonara Cohen, an outspoken suffragette and one of the first female magistrates 

  • Barbara Hepworth, a female artist and pioneer of sculpture

 

Alongside these illustrations I researched and wrote a short biography and created free downloadable worksheets for families, with activities linked to each woman that can be found at the link below.
