Artist Statement:

“Inspired by Aboriginal creation stories where the Dreamers left markings on the land recording their history, my recent art explores an honest and intimate expression of the visible and invisible marks our personal stories etch on our body landscape. Remembering without bitterness tender moments of childhood juxtaposed with the unbearable, I am compelled to make visible the hidden or taboo; the things you don’t see that have happened in the home, the things you don’t see that have happened to the body. Appreciating the incongruence of making bold and silent marks on fragile paper, I expect my work to age naturally. In losing myself in art-making, I return to innocence and wonderment.”
