Two components contrive her way of painting. The first, a repetition of images that serve to represent her, a queen, a dancer, a clown, a butterfly, a fish, a flower and a bird in many different methods and contexts. The second, a seemingly naïve and ‘childish’ style of painting which proposes to enhance the significance of the conceptual or symbolic dimension of the painting/ artwork. The paintings are painted on paper with pastel crayons, gouache and tempera, pencils and graphite.
