I constantly pick up sources from my immediate surroundings and imagination to find ways of paintings and to explore colours, forms and patterns, depth or lack of it. My boyfriend’s back can have the same visual interest as a night sky. Painting a subject allows me to explore its visual qualities as well as what fascinates me about the image in the first place. Themes that reoccur in my work are disparities between public and private lives, calm and chaos, domesticity and fantasy. I am intrigued by the push-and-pull between Self and Other.
