'Image 1 from a series called Sequence'
How do we get from A to B I wonder?
Using the head? The legs? The gut?
What does mapping the territory mean?
Being lost?
What happens to those who go and make their uncertain way against the forces?
What happens to those who stay?

Does society know what it wants from us?

We are told we can have it all: a career, a relationship, children, a home, while all the time staying slim and in control. The guilt if we don’t. Not all women can be everything. Life, we find, is a constant struggle, full of compromise. Every minutia of our lives have been analysed by professed experts and then paraded across the media to further fuel our feelings of inadequacy. We have the ability to control almost everything from fertility to fat intake.

How do we cope?
Who, what, why are we?
There are no definitive answers.

In these series of paintings I pick over women’s lives, offering up my own observations of what it is to be a woman today.
