Artist statement:

I was inspired to do this work by photos of my Aunty who started work at the AIM in the early 1930s before doing her nursing in Fremantle, then returning for a short time.  My family have also had connections with the hospital from its beginning.  I have enjoyed the process of going through family photos, talking to and seeing the other families involved.
