My work is about feelings, based on how we relate to one another. My aim is to engage the viewer in the same thought process as mine, so as to open an opportunity to self questioning. My paintings are stories which hopefully reflect my love of people. The life experiences I use to develop my work include; Father and daughter relationships, power relationships, relationships to parents, being and having a role model, sibling rivalry etc. I have clarity with each artwork in regard to the ideas I am exploring, however it is more important for me to be engaged emotionally with each work. I play with colour and light to help create the mood that I want the viewer to experience.
