Figurative composition featuring a figure, architecture and a cockerel.

This early student composition by Joyce Cairns exemplifies how she has often incorporated images of herself in her work. The majority of her work has been autobiographical, based on past memories intertwined with present experiences.

"The most important thing is for an artist to be themselves and to work in a way which is natural to them, whether fashionable or not.'
