Personal Statement: My work is rooted in realism. I have an interest in European
tradition of painting and classical training. The subject matter is a reflection of this
interest as well as the essentially female concerns of everyday objects. I believe that
the unique combination of background, upbringing and place of an artist defines a
particular identifiable mark. In this way the object is a vehicle for a particular artistic
identity. By placing objects and figures on one field they form a unique relationship to
one another and to the viewer. I enjoy the act of painting and celebrate the texture
and colour of paint.
