Born 1970 in Manchester UK. Pure abstract artist who uses paint to express the combining of opposites. Paint is applied randomly but is overlaid with geometric monochrome shapes, providing a contrast and distinction. Colour is very important as it underpins each picture space and installs a sense of vibrancy.
By placing representational and three dimensional objects onto the flat picture plane, this creates a further dichotomy between figurative v abstract and three dimensional versus two dimensional. Sometimes they also provide ambiguous cultural references, and therefore give a brief snap shot of life in the present and a sense of modernity.
Although originally born in Manchester of Armenian descent, she has lived and worked in North Wales for a number of years.
