Untitled, Oil on Canvas

Her current series of works aim to push the boundaries of painting beyond two dimensions, by creating a fictional space within the canvas. She looks to the immediate environment for ideas for possible space arrangements and mark making, for example; architecture, room interiors, graffiti and cityscapes.  These visual ideas are deconstructed, and recreated into abstracted components on the canvas.
