About the artist
Lives and works in London, UK. Her work is featured in private and public collections in the USA, UK, Europe (France, Sweden, the Netherlands) and Australia.

Artist Statement
My paintings come from a vain attempt to harness chaos and are often the results of happy accidents and waves of emotions that need to be channeled out. I am interested in creating a dark, surreal pictorial space and compositions that are crass, crude, silly, dark, glamorous, seedy, often tender and horribly autobiographic.
My work is also very much about exploring and pushing the potential of paint as a medium. I use the rhythm of marks, the thickness of layers and the fluidity of oil paint to build images where fragility and strength cohabit side by side within the same space. I like giving the viewer just enough clues about what is happening on the canvas (or paper) so that the work retains a sense a mystery and is always one step away from collapsing into nothingness.

Education
Fine Art BA, Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London, 2008.
