I am an artist.

Women fascinate me. Their complexity, their strength, their fragility, their imperfections, their vulnerability and their beauty – whether in myth, different religions or in folklore. My practice focuses on the relationship of how we reconnect with the echoes of our story’s past and weave them into our present realities.

My practice?
I love deconstructing women and then reimagining them in all of their many possible guises, facets and wisdoms as strong otherworldly beings. I find women in old magazines like Playboy where they have been objectified and then try to create powerful, mysterious & god-like beings.

I use household paint, ink, collage and sewing to create bold new narratives that are deeply intimate but also powerful and strong. Weaving & layering symbolism, marks, shapes and colour into bold new contemporary narratives.
