The starting point for this self-portrait is a large sepia toned photograph presented in an ornate frame that hung on the wall of my grandparents living room. It was taken at the professional photographic studio of Foley and Scott in Wigan.

This highly constructed image it shows me dressed in my best smocked frock and posed on a table against a cloud background. I am holding a carefully placed teddy in the crook of my arm and I look like a typical 'nice little girl'. This image 'Teddy' aims to challenge this notion of a 'nice little girl' and presents a girl who is angry with being stereotyped and very happy to be disruptive.
