My art work became a tool for me from a young age to express and understand my sexual identity as a female in relation to the environment I have been brought up in. An early interest in the way the female gaze challenged societies perception of women took me on an educational journey that now fuels the work I am interested in making, seeing and supporting. Previous exhibitions have focused on a fascination with self-image and its effect on the relationship with oneself, motivated through social media.
A recent personal journey of having an abortion took me down a similar path of exploring moments of insecurity as a woman and it was art, once again, that has allowed me to understand my own emotions and provided me with the confidence to address a subject which, for its complexity, is not discussed openly. I am dedicated in making the subject of abortion an open conversation, with the necessity of supporting women, as sisters. I interpret other women's experiences as well as my own in the artwork I make, providing a platform for sharing stories, because conversation equals a new way of thinking.
