Identity. What does this even mean.
We live in a world where individuals are encouraged to know who they are, to be empowered, to feel like they belong. For me, it is the spaces that lie within which give greater insight. Without vulnerability we are unable to show empathy, to become connected and to truly understand who we are.
Throughout my work, I attempt to make sense of it all.
I look back for further insight. As I join the dots and correlate universal histories I attempt to forge a better understanding of myself. Often I am sent into a spin of confusion but on the rare occasion, little glimmers of hope appear.
My paintings are representative of the truths and lies, of female struggles, of universal struggles, of personal loss, of belonging, of what we are, of what we are not.
