The Meldrum dinner Ladies are a strong group of a generally invisible work force. Each with their own character and challenges working hard in a difficult job. My mother was a dinner lady for over twenty years and it is a special environment a closed world to outsiders. It’s a working class place and not one often entered by painters and artists who overlook the rawness offered by women’s everyday lives. I tried to capture the feel of the place and the busyness and the feel of movement amongst the throng of living. A place I was very much a part of as a school pupil and daughter walking in and out.

I was born in Lancashire following a divorce I moved to north Aberdeenshire to start life afresh. Living the dream brings together the theme of dance and self portraiture. Dance has often been used as a metaphor for the events of life and death. Everyone has a dream and sometimes those dreams collide. I tried to capture the movement and energy of the dancers each in their own world whilst participating in the others.
