In 1996 my artwork was in the final selection for the
‘Prix Picasso’, Paris.
I have lived in a variety of countries - United Kingdom, France, Germany, Denmark, USA - and worked as a ballet dancer. An injury gave me the opportunity to pursue a career in art.
Coming from a theatrical and dance background, the consistent theme of my work is movement, which I translate on a visual pictorial level.
The movement of a body, voice or melody transgresses into sweeping mass of lines capturing the energy and beauty of the moving entity.
In a way, the act of drawing is choreographic; a drawn line is both a graphic entity and a physical movement that is at once spontaneous and precise, it is accomplished in one continuous movement. The pen hits the surface running and leaves it in the same fashion. My drawings consist of many such lines and movements, they combine selective thoughts on the observed with concern for the drawing as an entity in itself.I often like to combine my passion for drawing with collage, incorporating my fascination with materials.
