This paper focuses on a practice-led research project where the author as artist/researcher participates in a Queensland-wide women's history project to celebrate Queensland's Suffrage Centenary in 2005. The author participated in the Women's Historical Shoebox Collection, where Queensland women were invited to decorate and fill a shoebox with personal and symbolic items that speak about their lives and the lives of their women forebears. This paper explores the practice-led research process that enabled the artist/researcher to design and assemble her contribution. Fredericks describes the iterative process of developing the shoebox and the themes that developed through her artistic practice. She also describes the content of her shoebox and explains the symbolism underpinning the items. The Women's Historical Shoebox Collection is now owned by the State Library of Quensland and the Jessie Street National Women's Library.
