I am a British and European artist living and working in London.
MA Fine Art (Photography, Painting) Academy of Art (HfbK Lerchenfeld) Hamburg, Germany

I work with space, time and memory. I investigate how environments influence emotional states. My work is about defining identities, and re-defining myself as an older female artist.

I trace my own emotional space by bringing architectural environments into context with my personal experiences. Even though spaces change over time, feelings can attach themselves to surroundings and thus be sensed in a place when it is revisited many years later. The space might have changed completely, but it links between a moment lived, a feeling felt and the here and now.

My personal history is bound up with displacement, upheaval and loss. I have multiple belongings. In order to define ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ I work with images that trigger both familiarity and alienation - past homes, abandoned homes, traces of human living, transformed environments, once familiar buildings and surroundings.

My work is very much about putting things in context, balancing two or more elements against each other, stressing similarities as well as differences. My images contain both recognisable and abstract elements. Fragments of information, distortions and ambiguities encourage dialogues between visible and invisible elements. The resulting connexions might appear non-rational. They follow my own set of values. Shapes emerge that offer a range of possible associations and interpretations. These could be of both personal and collective nature.

Photography is my main artistic medium. However, my visual language is multi-layered, including photo editing, alternative photography and printing processes, mixed media and work with archival images.
