Artist Statement:

My work explores the strange phenomena of entangled memories and the moulding of psychological individual behaviour through the influence of various cultures, mass media and social structures. I am interested in a kind of sublime play that explores the nature of female identity and the human condition in relation to nature. My work is not bound to any particular medium, traditional display or expression but driven by content and intent. Studies of international art and cultures continually inform her work: she re-examines the presupposed construct of her own culture’s visual landscape.
