So far in our Hürrem series, our heroine as gone from slave to Suleiman’s favourite consort, to the mother of his children, to his wife. Let's continue!
Today I’m answering questions that came up from my first solo exhibition at ArtsPost. (Happy dance! Thank you for all your wonderful feedback!)

Suleiman broke centuries of tradition for Hürrem. Harem rules dictated that concubines could only bear the sultan one son. Hürrem bore Suleiman 6 children.
My first solo exhibition at ArtsPost is on now! I'm sure you'd love to see photos... so here you go! If you're in Hamilton, pop in and have a look!
Elena, Yevgen (Jack) and I continue to tell Hürrem Sultan's story. This artwork of the series is where one of the greatest romances in history begins...
