Guided by a preoccupation with womanhood and self-determination, I seek to understand the world through the act of painting. I’m attracted to the sensuous nature of oil paints, and I define the canvas as a home where subconscious sketches mingle with wilful and determined mark-making.
Flowers, faces and figures are long-held personal tokens in which meaning can be repeatedly invested to propose a generous realm where the interior and exterior meet and meld. Birthing that which is in opposition to the reality of daily life speaks to the magic of the painted image. It fulfils an urge to correspond with a rich lineage of women artists who work to define a self that remains obscured in popular culture.
