Check out her artist statement below to learn more about the latest collection:
“I have spent the last 15 years clambering around trying to figure out what kind of artist I want to be. Jumping from medium to medium, style to style. The one constant has always been my pen drawings, which started as mere doodling, but since grown into something far more meaningful to me.
I am fascinated by the complexity and detail that can be created from such simple building blocks as dots, lines and basic shapes. The possibilities are endless and every drawing is an adventure.
Each piece is entirely hand drawn. No pre-planning, or pencil sketch is done prior to inking. Instead, I allow the process itself to take the reigns, savouring every step until completion. I experience a great satisfaction from creating each piece.
The drawings themselves are a partnership between clarity and chaos and the creative process is much the same. I have to trust myself completely, and jump right in. The result is the most truthful work I have ever shown.”
