Drawing: Graphite, Paint, Metal and Ink on Paper.
Red Queen is a mixed media portrait currently not for sale as in an exhibition. I am particularly interested in women and strength, this artwork depicts both. I have been exploring identity and absence in my work (especially my graphite based pieces), hair is often a significant identifying feature so here I have left it blank, absent. The blank / white hair and other elements in the piece give it an ethereal quality which links with another reoccurring theme in my work: the spiritual.
