Interdisciplinary Drawing and Painting

“Set within the dwellings that make tangible the ephemeral qualities of intimacy, my work references personal reflections on desire and moments of belonging/non-belonging. Oscillating between a combination of painting, drawing and assemblage, the physical remnants of intimacy take shape alongside memory, revealing the stories of experience witnessed. ”
