Artistic Statement

I have been involved in creative fields all my life. In the course of my recent work I have read constantly. I’ve become increasingly interested in the meaning of life and the meaning of being a woman.

I have had a constant interest in fashion, photography and surface pattern design. My current work is an amalgamation of esoteric ideas, symbolism and a leaning towards artists who use surface pattern. Recently I have become interested in the concept of Magical Realism. I am specialising in 2-dimensional work which is pictorial and fantastical, creating my own romantic dimension, where in creatures of myth, legend and my own personal dreamscape form a surreal narrative.
