"My Fake Baby explores the lives of women who spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of pounds on lifelike baby dolls known as 'reborns'. Some have beating hearts and tiny veins. They are loved like real babies, cuddled and taken for walks. Doll designer Jaime [Eaton] – a mother of four – fulfils the dreams of other women by engineering babies to their specifications in her front room. Adoptive 'mothers' include women whose children have grown up and left home and women unable to have children of their own. It would be easy to dismiss all this as sad, strange and just plain wrong, but it gives great comfort to those involved."

"'We Are Family' brings a fresh, personal perspective to some of the most difficult bio-ethical issues of our time. Her work explores the changing relationship between what is considered natural and what is artificial, what is 'normal' and 'mutant'. Her works embody our dreams of perfect children and disease-free life, yet always articulate the value of difference and uncertainty. The 'family' portraits are created using a variety of media including videos and sculpture."
