This portrait was produced for 'Artfully Dressed: Women in the Art World', an ongoing project developed by photographer Carla van de Puttelaar to address the gender imbalance in the arts sector. An art historian as well as an artist, van de Puttelaar takes inspiration from Renaissance portraiture, posing her sitters against a dark background using only natural light. When interviewed about the process of collaborating with van de Puttelaar, Scarisbrick said that she felt the photographer had captured her 'continuing quest for knowledge'.
