My heroines, who emerge from the lovingly hand painted bold black outlines on the pop coloured canvas, may be one dimensional in design but shout in 4D surround sound volume to the viewer. I am inspired by images from long forgotten tales of love, lust and sorrow from vintage comics and romance novels. By plucking a single image from the pages and removing the subject from the story, I hand the power to the viewer to tell their own tale. A tear… is it heartbreak or a lucky break? That kiss… is it a blossoming romance or a passionate goodbye? I want my audience to throw themselves into the narrative, to weave their own life and experiences into the story that emerges from the canvas. Each heroine tells her own story but it is up the viewer to choose the adventure they go on.
