I am a mother of four children and my paintings are focused on my childhood and a past childhood. I continue to look at The Uncanny and other decades where homes were furnished with homemade items. I like to use dolls and old photographs as part of my inspiration. My studio is a room full of dolls, puppets and paintings.
I like to draw and paint life size or larger than life as the relationship between me and the inanimate becomes more connected. I realise how strongly a paintbrush connects with an artist and actually paints emotions and feelings from the gut! My favourite artists include Paula Rego, Marlene Dumas and Louise Bourgeios.
