I create new myths, heroines and fantasy worlds to counter the way they have been used to reinforce a patriarchal system throughout history. My stories come from an eco-feminist perspective that focuses on the importance of myth when trying to understand world issues. While serious, the comical and absurd are always present in my work. Life-sized installations that resemble theatrical scenes composed through a collaging of found objects, soft sculpture, craft and paper culminate in a ‘painting’ that uses photography. All work is done in camera, not through digital manipulation. The resultant image plays with perceptions of the ‘real’ and the ‘fake’ as an echo of the concepts that inform the work.
