how is this ‘Mother’ identity linked with that of the daughters, how much of the mother appears in the daughter and daughter in mother? Where does the individual begin and where does it end? Is individuality ever something fully claimed? Be that through motherhood or the consumption of women as the physical? How do our roles change from daughter, to Mother, to mother the mother? Do we have the language to even begin to work through our own identities as we navigate fertility, motherhood, expectation, and our bodies? The daughter becomes, as she is born, in turn making the woman a mother, which then may in turn make her a mother. When is the woman her own?

Recently returning to education after 11 years of commercial photography, has expanded my personal practice, allowing me the opportunity to disseminate and use visual art to question or relate to the world around me.

As a 38 year old female, re connecting with this form of expression & exposed to like minded creative’s all keen to grow & encourage one another, has positioned me as a curious new comer to this world again.  Allowing me to research, explore various methodology’s and gain an understanding of contemporary discourse and my own sense of self within our current political landscape.

My work tends to focus on themes of love and relationships and the fear, loss or expectation we reside within via these, imposed upon us from our experiences with both external and internal conditions or narratives.
