Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
I work on book pages that suggest or inspire what and how I choose to paint, giving new life to these images, letting them play a different role; yellowing books on house plants, flower pressing and needlepoint litter the shelves and suggest a semi redundant 1970's style of homemaking and taste, addressing outdated feminine pursuits and domestic crafts. I seek books that favour highly saturated photographs, from spectacular collections of gemstones to antique furniture, imagery that plays with scale and suggestion when combined with my painted incongruous figures, spliced and assembled, referencing what was originally there, working with the object, and against it, transforming and highlighting. The women that sparsely populate my paintings appear sometimes insouciant, untroubled by their unfamiliar or unnatural surroundings, at other times awkward in the environments which they have been placed, but always exist with a nod not only to the style and era of the book which I am working with, but also to the women that have poured over these home craft books over the years, including myself. I work mostly with ink on these chosen surfaces, and I like how you can be precise and exacting with a fine brush almost aping or melding with the existing printed page, yet also these glossy images provide a slippery surface for the ink so skid and drip and create surprises and pockets of inky, painted, fallibility.
