My paintings can best be described as figuratively idiosyncratic portraits in narratives. In my work I explore women's issues with psychological subjects of excess, complex sexuality, body politics and social taboos. My current work is representative of my worldview and inspired by current events and global feminist ideology. Interested in the transformative moment when a photographic image becomes a painting, I use photographs as the starting point for all my compositions. In addition to my own photographs, I use the personal photographs of others, and images found on the Internet, in magazines, movies and in the trash as my models.
