Pieces, generally designed to express joy or reflect moods often containing reference to personal experiences, as well as concerns for humanity, our environment, and the treatment of animals. Pieces infused with pattern, a sense of narrative and colour. part imagined – part life, all painted in her own naive style.

My life.e.quatic series is inspired by the natural aquatic environment and the creatures within. My interpretation of the complex structures, vivid colours and intricate patterning observed in a variety of marine creatures as well as a reference to mankinds influence over our environment. A meshing as well as a symbolic representation of how coral and surrounding ecosystems, once autonomous must now cling to us in the hopes of maintaining their continued existence....my self portraits HERE
