Artist statement

I am a self-taught artist who works primarily in collage, but also in media including acrylic, watercolour and marker. My practice is self-reflective, and explores themes of femininity, womanhood and identity. 
In my current work, women are represented ambiguous, disembodied and depersonalised, and often mix a classical and old-fashioned sensibility with a contemporary and hyper-sexualised one. The juxtaposition captures my experiences of being a young women, and of trying to grapple with performing and caught between so external expectations and contradictory ideas of what womanhood means. At the same time, in my portrayals of femininity I am reclaiming complexity and agency for women as thinkers, actors and creators. Through my images I aim to represent, question and imagine alternative ways of being for young women.
