My work is very personal and often depicts my relationships and feelings I have towards certain people in my life. Many of my ideas are heavily influenced by mythology's use of metaphor to describe the human condition, particularly Ovid's Metamorphosis. Relationships and emotional states are represented by the transformation of people into animals, and in my work, abstract shapes and forms. Furthermore, Frida Kahlo's “incorporat[ion] [of] symbolic portrayals of physical and phycological wounds” is something of great fascination to me.
Sexy Lady, (2013 oil on paper, 41x30cm) was painted in response to Picasso's paintings of Marie Therese Walter of the 1930s. I have always been fascinated by his sexy manipulation of form, and wanted to paint my own version.
