“Looking into my personal mythology, I create and reflect on an ongoing, non-linear narrative inspired by memories and dreams of the landscape where I grew up, and by the immediate process of mark-making. This series of 14 drawings explores a mix of painting and drawing media, with playful use of colours such as hot pink and gold. I focused on depicting strong female forms in bright, dream-like clothing woven into real and imagined landscapes, hoping to evoke feelings of optimism, fun, and connection.”
