Her are some pieces from my last show @ Ourglass. The work was dealing with themes of forbidden desire. There's even a self portrait, my first in six years. I developed my techniques working with image transfer and textile inlay..
Through the combination of traditional painting, contemporary print and image transfer technique with textiles, such as lace and kimono silk on wood and canvas, I create decadent pieces that represent the simplicity and beauty of the female form. By exploring concepts of divinity and the sanctity of moments I create emotive snapshots where the viewer becomes a voyeur of caught glimpses and stolen moments.. each lady has a secret to tell .. the birds symbolise those secrets. I am inspired by the women and fashion of eras such as the belle epoque, 1920's dancehalls, silent movies and beyond. The work embodies an essence that is both a contemporary celebration and timeless reflection on the divine moment.
