My project is reflective of my experience with cancer, the premature birth of my son and the emotional impact it had on my mental health as well as complex intersections of life as a mother, a wife and student.

I used the process of painting to form figurative depictions of the images, forming lucid yet whimsical portrayals, developing these snapshots into a life of its own, focusing upon the use of brushstrokes, allowing me to re-contemplate these moments.

I focus on the way paint can both describe and reform the image but at the same time, obliterate and submerge detail beneath subsequent layers.
