Painting from a family archive that I have collected over several years, I’m interested in how visual language changes through medium to medium, such as photography, drawing and translating it to a painting.
Working from collage and digital drawings, then transferring these to paintings, using the digital drawings and images I edit to help me colour plan the painting.
Looking at the female gaze and power structures between man, woman and child.
In new works I’ve been looking at what it’s like to be a working-class artist, looking at childhood and memories to influence my paintings.
I often only paint people I really know and that have/been in my life.
Currently I’m doing a project of all the women in my life alongside writing my dissertation which is on working-class Feminism.
