  • Artist’s Statement

    My work references the existential stress and emotional anguish examined in Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House (1879). This play provides a direct existential challenge to personal engagement relating to issues of gender. There is a questioning of the Utopian dream of an existence in freedom and truth referencing instead a complex place of loss, alienation and the objectification of women.

  • Biography

    The backbone to my creative practice is a dedicated commitment to a sound drawing discipline with a particular emphasis on life drawing. Drawing the human form and exploring the psychological components of human nature provide the most challenging yet rewarding components of my practice. The processes developed through a disciplined drawing practice are then transformed into the process of intaglio printmaking.
