As a painter I had never discovered something that excites me. After years of investigating diverse themes within my work, I still found that I was searching for something that truly sparked my curiosity. Only recently have I discovered the common thread that ties everything together, the figures in my artwork are always female. I have always had a deep urge to understand the female experience, and with each painting created there is a calling to explore it further. When making art I always ask myself ‘what is it like to be a woman in modern day society?’ and ‘what is the female experience?’ Within each painting I feel as if there is a part of me described in the subject alongside the attempt to represent a shared female experience.
