Mechanic,  Women's Auxiliary Army Corps,  makes an interesting comparison to the sculptures produced by Wrightson before the war - for instance Spirit of the Garden, 1912,  commissioned  by Theresa Susey Helen, Marchioness of Londonderry (1856-1919) for the garden at Wynyard Park, County Durham.



Wrightson exhibited at the Royal Academy and at the Society of Women Artists from 1906.  Her public sculptures are a small figure of St. George on the war memorial at Cramlington, Northumberland (1922) and the statue of a boy commemorating Charles Lamb (1928) in the gardens of the Inner Temple in the City of London.
