“ I have always been interested to explore the painted word and how music relates to colour and spoken sound. Many of my paintings (like the clothes line paintings) are made to be left outdoors, answering my interest in notions of decay and the fleeting passage of time, impermanence and eternity. Conversely, the installations engage with themes of scale and narrative, and the illustrations of Perrault’s fairy tales have been inspirational in the construction of creating alternative realities.”
