My paintings look at the representation of women in visual culture and within art history, in particular the representation of those form a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background.

In this piece I am continuing to explore creating multiple visual layers using visual suggestions of drapery and holes to conceal and reveal new spaces within the painting.

I am interested in the interaction between the women in my work and the space around them and want to build the notion of them being in control of the environment they are in; one women is pulling back the edges of the painting to reveal another woman, the women at the back are painting the sky.

In my work I am giving these women space and ownership of their environment, by doing so I hope to tell them that it is ok to be seen and to take up space.
