I am a UK based self-taught conceptual artist and my work is drawn upon narratives from the female perspective based on my own experiences of women’s rights and identity, domestic abuse, mental health and invisible illness. My intention is to create subtle, relatable pieces that portray both the frangible and durable elements of our existence; in which the subject matter is almost secondary and conversely more intense, and which express vulnerability and instability but also allude to the fundamental core strength within. I enjoy responding to both reference and materials in unconventional ways, pushing their and my boundaries.
I began my creative journey at age 45 in 2015 and have since shown work throughout the UK and internationally. In June/July 2019 I had my first solo show, Still Life, at The Jam Factory, Oxford; and in October 2018 I co-curated an exhibition at Espacio Gallery, London which coincided with World Mental Health Day and brought together 43 international, emerging and accomplished artists who express life’s difficulties through artwork created as and for self-expression, communication and therapeutic release.
Most of my work is for sale: sculpture and ball originals; and limited edition aluminium or acrylic prints, or unique handmade (A6-A3) 300gsm paper prints. If you're interested in purchasing or discussing anything please contact me.
