    Biography

    Figurative representation is integral to my work, I mainly work with oil on Canvas, but have investigated through Video and audio art how a memory or a visual image can be translated. My current projects are personal and look sensitively at the relationships between mother and child, whilst also inspecting the process of an artist/mother making work with her children. The intense focus on my children throughout my artwork serves to unravel the deep emotions hidden inside me, whilst intending to forge a stronger bond between them and myself. I am interested in how space, time, and visual representation affect the viewing experience, and look for subtle ways in which my pieces can communicate my ideas to the viewer.
