"The Girl With The Pearl Earring" I chose the name as it relates to a Vemeer painting. Vemeer was a portrait artist during the Dutch Golden Age. A good proportion of the wealth during this period was gained through the transatlantic slave trade. I wished to draw an image I found searching through the internet over a stamp of queen Elizabeth. The actual photo online is that of a boy, but I translated the imagery to depict a girl to give sense to the transient boundaries when relating to identity, heritage and culture. She has been drawn over an image of the queen to pay homage to the ancestors that were enslaved during the transatlantic slave trade and how that underpins part of today's European wealth and to pay homage to the untold rich history of African and Caribbean people over time and their influences in forming Britain and Europe.

* There are 9 prints available. The prints I have in stock are no's 4,5,7 and 12. The final 5 prints are still to be produced.
