Interpretive text
"The Reluctant Nun is by no means a literary object but it is open to interpretation. Is it merely an artist's imagination translated to a story of fear, deception and religious hypocrisy or to one of unconditional love, forgiveness and women's resourcefulness? Reader's choice." Extract from artist's statement.

This work by Sheree Kinlyside won the Regional Artists’ Book category in 2010, and was acquired into the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection. The accomplished printmaker has combined her linocut prints with a story rendered in letterpress, to create a timeless-feeling fairy tale style format.
