My work is a combination of illustration and sculptural relief which is achieved with wire as the line can be taken off the page and into space.
My inspiration comes from within. External experience is internalized and my work is my own personal processing made into form. As somebody who is not so confident with words my work is necessary for me as a response to the world.
Themes that run through my work are relationships with ourselves, loved ones and the wider community. Motherhood, and aloneness. Explorations into our thoughts, how thoughts can give rise to feelings of entrapment and paralysis through fears and anxiety.
The pursuit of freedom from thought.
In more recent work I have been using symbolism through the natural world, animal, bird and plant life to represent the different aspects of our inner selves and the ultimate interconnectedness of all things.
