My research is centred on my practice as a painter. This includes large scale papercuts which have been both digitally collaged and intricately hand cut, thereby emphasising the surface, as well as ornately decorated ceramic forms. My subject is the female figure as a motif juxtaposed with alternative historical representations enveloped by  pattern, drapery, contemporary motifs such as computer icons and domestic elements. The work is informed by the Decorative and Applied Arts. Drawing is central to my practice as a thinking process through which I build an 'archive' of usable visual imagery, both hand drawn and digital. With the collaged work, the cut line of the scalpel blade is an equivalent to the line of the pencil.
