My story starts with a very vivid imagination, humble beginnings, and a family history with mental health.
This lead me to fall in love with the Jungian psychoanalysts, to hunger for internal growth & to wonder where the edge of one's mind lay.
Creating art was therefore a natural outlet. You will find my work playfully wonders between reality & the imaginary, encouraging others to turn inward to explore the depths of their own psychology.
For me creating is a way to uncover hidden aspects of the self.
An idea will visit me, and as I begin attempting to realise it- there is a point in the painting process where one let's go.
The space between what it was & what it became; appears to be a delicate dance between the conscious and the unconscious. The message is often feminine, intuitive and driven by healing. Pondering on the human experience & our connection with realms other than the physical.
Via the use of mixed media with fluorescent pigments, the work takes on an extra sensory element.
Symbolism is also important, often adopting the metaphor of a garden to describe our inner landscape. For a garden does not judge, and what you nurture will grow. Gardens are therapeutic, grounding, wild & instinctive. My art honours this connection, the complexity of plants & human beings.
