Per Ardua Ad Astra - through adversity to the stars...
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot highlights the challenges women face in being defined by their gender and celebrates the wonderful women who forged a path for others. When Crookshank left the RAF she knew it was time to pursue her dream of doing something creative. She says, "Exploring our identity is a life-long challenge. Reinventing yourself and finding a voice in such a disciplined environment as the military is unique – it has inspired me to create some art which I think makes for an interesting story."
