About my artwork
I have chosen to look at the subject of anxiety, which has links to my earlier work on agoraphobia (a fear of open places).

In my recent work I have used some photographs of myself, but also old photographs from an old album. I selected them because they are rather dark in mood and have a feeling of anxiety and also punishment.

I have used soft pastel on black board in my recent work. I thought the impermanence of the soft pastel and old fashioned black board would capture the fragility of the old black and white photographs. I have also used ink and felt-tip on board and oil on board.

The artists which I found most relevant to my work are Carrie Levy, Maya Dickerhof, Barbara Kruger and Francesca Woodman.

#10 is very powerful to me. I like the unfinished nature of it as well as the texture of the skin. I wish the faces were visible in the pieces like #19. They would say so much.
