Throughout 2020 the ecology of her local cemeteries has been a source of respite and inspiration, culminating in a series of stop motion videos for the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project. A regular exhibitor at Digbeth’s Kaleidoscope Arts Market, Doyle is an active member of the local creative scene. She curates Old Bort’s Sticker Club a group design project that fosters co-promotion and access to affordable commercial printing for over thirty early career creatives, and Low Brow Brum, a roaming exhibition that held its first event at Tilt just weeks before the first lockdown. She’s also an illustrator and writer for Birmingham Review and Counteract magazines covering drag, music and cabaret, and a dedicated recording artist and live performer with local bands The Devil and Saint Joseph and Sofa King.
