Artist Statement
My artwork explores and celebrates the bumps and bruises of womanhood and motherhood with vivid color, shape and high contrast. I love the creative process and my work ranges from the conceptual/abstract to figurative. I’m keen to combine art materials, like original digital drawings, image transfers, text, and photography with painting and drawing to create fresh, relevant mixed media artwork. And sometimes, I like to just paint.
