'Goddess (You Are Here)'
January - April 2019
At the very beginning of 2019 I set out to start an ambitious painting project. I wanted to create something big yet intricate, with each part holding equal value while flaunting its own uniqueness.
The previous year brought up some personal challenges to my identity. I began exploring what it meant to be female not only in the art world but in the world in general. I began working with this through paint, creating intersecting layers of order, then chaos and so forth. It's also an exploration of boundaries, a common theme throughout all of my art work.
I wanted to confront my own insecurities and really take up space, with all my glory, moods, complexities and imperfections. No apologies this time.
So this is a painting about being a woman. Being a female artist. Taking up space. Creating order. Creating chaos. Being multi faceted. Being whole. Embracing the dance between our brightness and our darkness.
THE CELESTIAL PROJECT
November 2014 - November 2015
These paintings are the result of a long awaited collaboration with my friend Andy Peutherer.
We combined my slightly OCD geometric style with his loose and spontaneous methods to produce a mesmerising depiction of outer space. The paintings are made up of acrylic and spray paint to produce a unique style and wonderful effect.

A collection of paintings I had been working on this year exploring the topic of memory and emotional attachment. Giclee prints of each painting featured are available, and some original paintings are still for sale at the gallery.
