Biography

Taking the notion of the past informing the present, my practice is based around extensive historic and genealogical research into the domestic and working roles of women.

Primarily a painter, I also create works using textiles, found objects and handmade paper.

Working in series with materiality and repetition playing a significant part in the process, I am interested in the small and apparently trivial details of everyday life. Layering, distortion and erasure all play a key part in my work, referencing the deceptive nature of historic narrative.
