In a light-filled studio, she works on the monoprints, the most hand-made method of printmaking and the one most open to accident and resolution. Preoccupied with defining figures inhabiting their own internal logic of mood, space and light, as she concentrates, her mind is freed to dip below the conscious to trace the rocks and fissures of a female psyche.
The oil paintings, of solitary figures that are estranged, and are a further meditative abstraction using a limited range of colours and the direct force of her mark-makings to sustain a drama as we approach these figures reaching out to us.
