Biography

My work in mixed media sculpture and painting is inspired by my experience of parenting- giving birth, motherhood and children- giving expressions to the feelings evoked by these aspects of life, viewed from different perspectives.
The often disturbing observations always find a positive twist in my sculptures and objects, giving the observer a tool, showing a door to view things differently and remain positive about it.
It is a very hands on approach, just as it is working and dealing with children. Therefore my art often focuses on handwork and traditional handcraft techniques. Repetition in handwork, a learned skill, frees the mind and reveals hidden thoughts which find their way into the artwork. The material I use is often found and recycled and carefully chosen in accordance to the message of my sculptures.
