Mixed media on board painted from a black and white image of Margaret Anne Thompson , convicted of larceny at Ripon court , her face is haunted , her eyes staring forward .
I decided to paint her using matt saturated colours giving a look of hand coloured photographs from the turn of the century
I visited Ripon court and jail and saw how the conditions were in Victorian times , I was touched by the stories and the photo's of the prisoners . So when I got home I researched the subject . I was touched by the mainly small crimes almost always bourne out of poverty and the severity of the punishments . There is a sense of injustice , these were real people , someone's relatives . Thank goodness it is a time past , another world
