Her work is part of a new international movement of painting termed ‘disrupted realism’ which explores methods of combining realism and abstraction. She uses this technique to communicate the subtle emotional qualities in the human experience allowing the viewer to access their own emotional state in response to the work. Her aesthetic combines exquisitely rendered figures with gesturally applied thicker layers of paint. On a conceptual level the abstraction contributes to the emotive quality of the painting whilst also having an underlying meaning for the artist.
