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.
