Women artists are severely under represented in the art world. Female artists in 2019 was documented to only be 2% of the art market at auction houses, only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America and yet 65% of art graduates are women. I wanted to make a platform so that young female creators could have a promotion of their work. This page is dedicated to them.

Lily Pagano, Photographer

“My grandfather was a photojournalist, but I never actually met him. My father always jokingly says that I inherited the photography ‘gene’. Oddly enough I agree with him; from a young age I was always drawn to a position behind the lens.”

Charlotte Macaulay, Photographer

“It would drive me mad if my career wasn’t also my passion. I hope to be able to eventually make a career solely out of my practice and I think this takes a lot of devotion outside of regular work hours. I wouldn’t be motivated to invest as much time if I wasn’t passionate.”

Amelie Peace, Fine Artist

“I feel like I couldn’t have done anything else. Mostly, it’s was always my first point of interest from a young age. As well as a specific teacher later on in my life who supported me and gave me all the tools I needed to be where I am now. She is the one I thank for making the decisions I have done in my professional adult life.”

Emily Davies, Photographer

“I like to capture realities as well, such as differences in culture or class. The power used through photography enables such detailed truth is something I don’t think any other medium can portray.”

Denia Abell, 3D Animator

“At first it was just a hobby as I was really into my music and was going to do that, but one thing led to another and I decided to study art as this was the only thing I could really see myself doing in the future. The idea that I could create ANYTHING I wanted, excited me a lot!”

Sophia Cook Browne, Designer

“Now I design menswear, specialising in tailoring. I find one of the most exciting aspects of design is the research, and I tend to be drawn to the romance of art, literature and history as a starting point.”
