Statement

Creating is my constant, it’s how I navigate through life, making my work autobiographical and cyclical in its nature. It’s a sensual and investigative process, led by my experiences and intuition. Fabricating other worldly scenarios, I integrate body art, performance, location and costume. Painting this journey exposes my raw and intimate response; the physical act becoming a performance in itself. People are my main source of my inspiration. I’m fascinated by themes of identity, archetypes and other worlds; my work existing somewhere between what I live and imagine. I consciously seek new situations; creating juxtapositions in, environment, sound, landscape and familiarity, making new found clarity in the unknown. My work explores the realms of the feminine, delving in to the psyche in all its varied and contrasting manifestations. I go through both a transformative and reflective process, in the pursuit to uncover the relationship between self, other and the space between.
