In June 2015 Connie was the Artist in Residence at Sumburgh Lighthouse Shetland, during the residency she researched the social history aspect of the keepers and their families who stayed, worked and lived at the lighthouse. Connie recorded these experiences in her sketchbook, this then developed by using cloth, constructing textile wall hangings, each one decorated with different surface effects and hand stitched techniques.
