Artist Statement: My work always directly relates to my life experiences. These include relationships, conception, pregnancy, birth, deaths and illness. I’m exploring how my life is being “run” by things I can’t see or control – I am imagining inner worlds, “cellular landscapes”, and our bodies as vessels.
I love using a wide variety of media. Working on paper and wood gives me a “skin” to layer my images on. The surface absorbs the mdi a in such a way, so an entire story can be told in “levels”. I like the texture, scaled and the uneven edges, they are frail and unique like our bodies.
