My practice revolves around domesticity as a central theme, and the relevance of exploring aspects of the home and observing life as a woman today. Despite not being limited to domestic themes, by choosing to explore the home; the fabric, the people in it and observing everyday life, there is a richness in the patterns of life which are often overlooked and brushed aside.
Observing everyday life means taking time to look. For me, the importance of looking at the unseen aspects of life involves a lot of drawing. My practice is underpinned by drawing from life, and I enjoy taking my sketchbook to obscure places, the beach, the market or in the studio, to see the people and places that can be observed and so easily overlooked. These drawings find themselves repeated and refined in my paintings, monoprints and etchings, where I can work through an idea and experiment with it closer, try it in different mediums and understand the value and emphasis that can be given to everyday life.
