I’m Inside, Ring the Bell – an interpretation of Judy Chicago‚Äôs The Dinner Party. Alongside thirty seven other artists Moira was invited to make a place for a woman who had ‘influenced and shaped her creative practice’ and she chose Barbara Hepworth.

Glimpsed – Sculptures were made from handmade paper using plant material, foraged from ancient coppiced beech and hazel rows and made in response to a fragment of ancient farmland where human intervention dates back to the Bronze Age.

The Foragers – This project was a collaboration with French artist Anne Maurange and took the form of a series of small studies, gathered and gleaned like a forage. Work included drawing and wood marking with fire to represent the wings of the bees.

Dark Fire White Fire – This collaboration with Ilinca Cantacuzino at All Saints Church was part of Dulwich Open House. The installation used charred and living wood to play with the changing light in the church.
