From a young age I became acutely aware that I was surrounded by generations of strong and independent women. As I matured and the bonds between these women and I developed, I became overwhelmed by the spiritual elevation that occurs when a group of women come together. These bonds have led me to explore contemporary feminist and gender issues as well as the human body in my art. As a visual artist I use numerous art forms but I have a particular interest in soft sculpture, installation art and analogue photography. The processes of these disciplines have allowed me to explore the issues I am interested in from both a political and autobiographical perspective. As I continue my art practice, I aspire to create work that evokes not only an emotional response but an acknowledgement of hidden issues within the feminist arena.
