    Biography

    My work explores themes of gender, memory and identity using the process of painting, printmaking and alternative photography. Paintings of human forms evolve through a method of pouring and dripping a limited palette of water-based media onto selected handmade and plastic-coated papers. My photogram studies (cyanotypes) use objects connected to the feminine and domestic function. These are often items of antiquity, in particular fragments of lace and articles worn for rites of passage, such as a wedding or christening gown. These items evoke memories, and become treasured keepsakes. I am interested in historical social structures and roles of women, particularly in the Victorian era.
