    Artist Statement

    My work deals with notions of identity, gender, race, beauty and how my own identity is an amalgamation of my past and the people around me. With the use of bright saturated colours, mark making, paint and charcoal I aim to create a female figure which is influenced by the bodies of actual people such as myself and family members. My paintings are my attempt to answer questions of my own views of my body and how race influences my perception of beauty.
