I’ve been working primarily across three series in addition to my commission based work. The first series, Stripped Bare, came about because of my enjoyment of drawing the curves of the human
body. However as I created the compositions I realised that there was something reflective about each of my figures, which I chose to show in a very natural, imperfect manner, and who seemed to
be lost in thought. For me this evoked my own tendency to meditate over my insecurities and fear of vulnerability. To be stripped bare is to be unguarded.
Reflections on Transience is also highly introspective. This series is born of my tendency towards nostalgia and worry, and my effort to combat these bad habits by becoming present in the moment.
I use shadow, light, and moments of subtle beauty to express a desire to redirect our attention towards the now.
Finally the series Collective Identities focuses on what it means to belong to a tribe. It came about because of my love of people watching in a city like London, where the cultural, religious,
sexual, political and psychological identities coexist while remaining very much separate. I am interested in both the visual interest of these groups and the layered meanings behind their
formation. The subjects I choose for these are mainly women, and are selected both from my own observation of the city streets, and from stories of women with complex cultural, religious, or
value based identities have the potential to put them in jeopardy.
