ABOUT ME

Artist Statement

I am a British artist based in Padua, Italy.


My passion for art started from a young age growing up in the Wiltshire countryside. It was developed further with my art training from Marlborough College; an Art Foundation in Wiltshire; and a BA (Hons) in History of Art and Architecture (UEA) which informed my interest in light, space and architectural forms.


During my degree I won an Erasmus scholarship to the University of Pisa, Italy. I instantly fell in love with the country and I now call it my home. 

I am a proud mother of two blue-eyed, bilingual chiIdren. We spend our time between Padua and Volterra.

My artwork has been exhibited widely in art fairs and galleries in the UK and Europe. Many of my  artworks are now in private collections worldwide.

Additionally, I enjoy teaching art workshops to children and I mentor adults in person and online, see  www.startlab.co for details.


WHAT MAKES ME UNIQUE

For some years now I have been developing and focusing my research on the theme of urban life and urban silence, constantly discussing the progression of the rapidly transforming urban landscape in terms of architecture, technology, politics and social change. At times there are glimpses of natural landscapes.



Photography has become my tool to investigate, discover, confront, and ultimately portray the contemporary world.  After some years of elaborating the technique, photographic transfer has become an integrated part of these works, it originates with the photographic shot, while the images are then applied by hand and fused with the various materials. I also express my own internal landscape through gestural marks as I continue to transform within this transient space. The cityscapes represent real places captured in my drawings or photography and are then transformed into a dreamlike dimension where space, sound and time are segmented into pictoral planes.


I use a wide range of mixed media techniques; acrylic, photographic transfer, photography, collage and printmaking on various supports ranging from canvas, wood, to sheets of oxidized metal.​
