My paintings and sculptures are the product of a response to my immediate surroundings; be it a gesture in a conversation or a headline in the news. My way to express these ideas is to link them to an autobiographical situation or pursue research which will inform my work. I then playfully upset the concept by applying a surreal approach together with an unexpected colour palette as well as flat forms and symbols. My interest in human interaction and behaviour is evident in my work through narrative and dialogue between the elements in the composition.
My autobiographical work reflects and reuses the themes of life and time; they cannot exist without each other however they abide in perpetual conflict. My figurative work is conceptual and surreal which deals with topical issues faced by women and the world we live in. I draw inspiration from the simplest of things: a gesture, an image, a word. My conceptual work employs both traditional as well as innovative techniques where I push the boundaries.
My favourite work is undertaking private commissions because I relish the challenge to realise each piece, behind which there is always a story.
Whilst working on intimate pieces of art, I also enjoy working on proposals for public commissions. This contrast allows room to design site-specific structures for everyone to engage with and designed to evolve in their surrounding elements.
