Throughout much of her life Dorothie Field shared a close empathy with mining communities. In a retrospective exhibition of her work held in 1990, she wrote: "Born in London 1915, I have been a 'northerner' since 1931. I live in and identify with North Nottinghamshire 'Coal Country'." During the 1980s, Field moved to the small mining village of Clowne where she was surrounded by eight working pits.
