My work focuses on the image of the female and its history. I have engaged with the nuances found in classical forms that are carried throughout history and into modernity. My paintings specifically respond to the representation of the female form in popular culture and its relationship to the past through the medium of painting. They are conceived within the context of mythological antiquity and classical renaissance painting and sculpture. Through this method I consider the use and purpose of the female image throughout history, objectively dealing with historical and contemporary beliefs regarding the female form.
