Each painting is host to different ‘lives’, held in place by a solid field of colour. The nature of life as professional ‘juggler’ of different roles, like so many of us – mother, wife, ex-wife, teacher, etc. – has effected how I’ve put the pieces together. Devoid of the luxury of uninterrupted spates of studio time, the paintings echo the fragmented nature of my days.
All my titles are a playful and intuitive response to the finished paintings; they come at the end. The hope, however, is that the work stands for itself for the viewer to make his or her own interpretation.
