Homage To My Sisters is a series of digital drawings made in response to women sharing their stories about deciding to terminate a pregnancy. The project was created by interviewing women ranging from 18 to 40 years old, each telling their stories of experiencing an abortion. These drawings shed light on the complexity of the decision and the emotional challenges faced, often silently and alone.
“I recognised the responsibility my sister felt being pregnant. I couldn’t relate.”
“The memory that sticks in my mind was driving half an hour to satisfy my craving for fried chicken. I rarely think about the time I was pregnant.”
“Arriving in England with no friends, little support and finding out I was pregnant was my welcome present from England.”
“The coil predicts 1% chance of becoming pregnant. Continual tiredness confirmed that 1% possibility.”
A silent story. Honoured and protected.
“I was hungry, bloated and nauseous continually. I just wanted this thing out of me.”
