Art has always been a significant tool in my life. Growing up, I was lucky to have parents and grandparents who strongly encouraged creativity. My Grandfather, a painter, spent most of his career in the arts industry and was the first to introduce me to watercolour painting and has been a continuing mentor. Recently I have become less interested in painting and drawing and taken up sculpture. Throughout my practice I have explored ideas such as exposure, relationships and sex. The body has always been my motif, particularly feminine shapes and contours. My major work evolved out of these experiments, though I have become more interested in the internal body and more visceral forms.
