  • Artist Statement

    My love for painting and drawing started as a young child. It has grown from fashion drawings and developed into paintings on canvas. My subject and media choices have continually evolved with my maturation as an artist. I have a passion for mixed media and texture, combining acrylic with charcoal and pastel. I am involved regularly in life drawing which has a huge influence on my paintings.


    The female body is a starting point for most of my works, but not necessarily represented in a traditional or realistic form. Surface texture is a big part of what I do I often use my hands, rather than a brush, to add another dimension. My work varies between the abstract and figurative. And, my studies and experience as a fashion designer have taught me how to bring proportion and balance into my art.
