Atalanta was the only woman to take part in the Calydonian Boar hunt alongside Theseus and Meleager. With the quarry cornered, the hunt devolved into chaos.

When Atalanta was born, her father had hoped for a boy and so he left her on a mountainside to die of exposure as was the practice with unwanted girls or disabled children. Artemis, in the form of a shebear, found her and suckled her. She was raised as one of Artemis’ huntresses.

Sanctuary, cast bronze and ceramic flowers and foliage with 200-year old reclaimed local wood

The wooden pedestal is from 200-year old wood salvaged from homes being remodelled in the artist's neighbourhood.

In this piece, I have cast each nest in lead salvaged from the torn out ironwork of Parliament Hill— an act of preservation at the perceived fragility of a tiny sanctuary and an exploration of the weighted concept of home and domesticity."
