I am an image-maker; I draw, collage, print, digitally render, but foremost, I paint. I explore the feminine experience and its distinct qualities, with an ongoing exploration linked to maternity, fragility, temporality, youth, corruption and mortality. My focus ranges from the ‘original loss of innocence’ and ‘lost paradise’ found in the Bible when Eve took the forbidden fruit as the first woman, to the present day taboo surrounding ‘gender’ and my personal experience as a contemporary female artist from Northern Ireland.
