My work is a reflection upon significant and frequently ignored issues relating to the struggle between intellect, emotion and reality. Inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House (1879), I explore the interplay of empty signifiers that can replace reality with a series of egocentric games, patriarchal dominance and a perversion of basic reality. My work questions the utopian dream of an existence in freedom and truth as I examine a complex place of loss and alienation.

Informed by my committed practice to drawing from life, my work is drawing based with a strong commitment to intaglio etching and photopolymer printmaking.
