Is an abstract artist and captures moments, memories, past and present .

All consuming, erratic, passion tinged with shadows and light. Dreams and life exposed laid bare for all to view. Painting is a way of conversing or telling a story ,starting is easy ending is impossible, she has to be satisfied that every part of her mind, heart and soul is entwined together on canvas. Her medium is acrylic matt metallic and spray paint. She doesn’t plan her paintings but lets them organically evolve working loose with fingers, brushes, spray cans and water.
