My practice documents my everyday experience of the world, in particular my relationship with social and family hierarchy and the responsibility I feel as a female. Issues of ageing, identity and self discovery are at the forefront of my work which transcends photography, sculpture, collage and installation. Exploring the constant battle between responsibility and freedom, I use a variety of media to elaborate the complexity and duality of these subjects. Language plays a key role in my work: Language as both form and meaning, both poetic and polemic.
My influences range from Street Art to the Feminist Art of the 70's and 80's to the work of great women contemporary artists such as Doris Salcedo, Annette Messager and Mona Hatoum.I have a strong background in Architecture which often materialises in my work by the use of space, scale, materiality and anthropometrics.My recent work has focused upon my body and human form and it has also responded to the Covid-19 pandemic.
