My work derives itself from my personal experiences and observations as a woman in Contemporary Australia. I have chosen the filmatic stage to portray my characters, making my own version of Noir - my Femme Noir. The characters in my paintings often appear disassociated in their environments; there in physicality but removed and mentally detached, existing in their own worlds. Women stare into space, involved in their private lives, housed in their own environments. Here there are pristine interiors, with patterned walls and floors, whilst the shadows play with the psychological presence of people inhabiting the scenes.
