Doreen's Diary  is a fictitious account of a wife and mother who is employed on the 1954 Royal Tour of Australia as a seamstress. Early entries express Doreen’sexcitement to be part of such a monumental event, however as the tour goes on she comes to question the Queen’s role in Australia and grows increasingly more scathing. 

The diary makes up part of The Crimson Thread project as was presented during the exhibition and artist residency at Le Space Gallery, Melbourne.
