My entry for Nina Cosford's competition 'That's What She Said'. This competition brief was to choose a quote that was said by an inspirational woman and to illustrate it.
"The more I study, the more insatiable do I feel my genius for it to be."
Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) was an English mathematician. She was the first person to write a computer program while working with Charles Babbage on his project: the 'Analytical Engine' (a mechanical computer). Her program turned a complex mathematical formula into a simple code that could be punched onto cards and fed into the computer.
