This work is a collaboration - with the focus on change, creativity, childhood and direction underpinned by intertextuality. (The art work is a amalgam of other, often unconscious, notions and ideas.) My work explores ideas about childhood and family - its duality and subversive nature, social conflicts, innocence with an innate and intrinsic knowledge portrayed in a visual vocabulary of emotions and childhood experiences. I try to capture the reverence of childhood, centred within the beliefs of society, but I also try to address issues that lie behind aspects of childhood. For a long time my work had an autobiographical connection with this premise, but recently I have been concerned with expanding and developing the dichotomies within these themes. read full statement
