Studio portrait 2018

Influenced by early Dutch and Flemish paintings I have a long-term interest in traditions of iconic imagery in women's portraiture often exploring the identity of, seemingly anonymous women.

With painting, drawing and sometimes the use of collage I try to construct emotionally-complex images. 

Layers of meaning and mystery are achieved through the painting process.
Paintings develop through experimentation and intuition but with an awareness and control of the media used. 
Themes include domesticity, rites of passage, sexuality and memories of childhood
