I have been fascinated since childhood with the juxtaposition of pagan (Celtic) and Christian symbols as conceptual ideas representing celebrations of nature (garden), fertility (egg), and hope (tree) and these images are often interwoven with contemporary issues throughout my visual palette.

Particularly intrigued with the conflicting image of woman portrayed throughout art history as both Eve and Mary, (seductress and angel) and the multiple ubiquitous symbols women represent: mother, earth, nature and humanity; these images are interwoven throughout my visual palette.

    As you may have guessed, I’m into detail, texture, and try not to work it to “death”- although here she is “coming back to life”!!:)
