'Harnessing the contemporary aesthetic of mediated visuality, my work acknowledges the influence of the screen paradigm through notions relating to fluidity, painting as object/surface and the perception of interactivity, relating to a virtual form of tactility.
'My artwork seeks to engage the viewer immediately in an aesthetics of the feminine, utilising tactile participation, close and yet distancing at the threshold of vision and touch.'
