Meet the Artist



Drawing & Painting

“In my thesis work, Citrine Daydream, I explore the tender joy of what it means to be woman discovering the excitement of the erotic. In my work I recognize the erotic as a deeply feminine force that empowers women through acts of self-love and indulgence, rejecting the patriarchal notion of the erotic as being explicitly sexual.I make use of colour relationship theory to express the visceral feelings associated with the spontaneous realizing of the erotic power. I want my work to look as happy as it makes me feel! Creating an imagined reality that depicts a gathering of women blissfully enjoying themselves in the company of one another, I pull from my intuitive feelings to birth each figure confidently and free of expectation. Considering notions of intimacy, ardor, and self-exploration, I employ contemporary interpretations of the body to examine the feminine affair.In more recent work, I further abstract the floral shapes and vivid colour palette of my figurative work to create energetic compositions that enable the act of painting to become an individually erotic experience. The excitement of painting radiates through playful shapes, strokes and colours to build upon concepts explored in Citrine Daydream. ”
