My art and life are completely intertwined, I am a mother and I bring the same focus and intention to the studio that I brought to parenting my four children. Underlying my work is a desire to challenge limitations and question the idea of authority. I find that by sliding across media to explore a subject is liberating and expansive in unexpected ways. I use drawing, painting, installation, photography and film to research and meditate and I find that this approach opens up new possibilities in a non linear way that is very satisfying. The more that I try to identify authority and power, the more elusive it seems; blue smoke that retreats on approach.
