Katie's Jumper 


My sister Katie died of Carbon Monoxide poisoning at the age of eleven. My work has been created to heighten awareness of this issue through processing my own and familial grief. Using my dad as subject and addressing aspects of loss, the work confronts longstanding traditional gender roles and the denial of opportunity for him to suitably grieve. This work has provided us with a space to reflect on his long held raw emotion felt by Katie’s death.
