Painting is a sanctuary and the figure depicted or absent is biographical.

This is my sanctuary. Art is a means of research and healing. throughout my career as an artist,
Early memories involved isolation violence and stories about death, the disasters of war, the deep dark dungeon, ghosts and the bogyman have all left me with a deep love for the works of Goya and Odilon Redon. A mixture of post-traumatic stress disorder, and a source of celebration of being. Including my experience of being a woman, wife, mother and daughter. All these things have made me who I am and I paint about it.
