I construct utopian worlds, flaunting excess and opulence through reanimating familiar subjects. My paintings often re-evaluate the historical tableau, presenting the female figure as artist, rather than the more traditional muse. The image of the artist is dissected, as symbols of wealth, status and belief are placed within the studio setting, highlighting to the misconception of the artists ‘champagne life’, while reinforcing its elitist and exclusive nature. I offset traditional modes of painting with more spontaneous methods of mark making, striking a balance between the historical and contemporary. I reshape and skew preconceived archetypal forms through a meticulous process of handmade collage. The works strike a balance between abstraction and realism, as the initial photographic reference is transformed by the application of paint.
