In Puberty I represent the transformation into adulthood. There is a maelstrom of emotions, feelings of uncertainty, shame, and beauty simultaneously. The unstoppable force of nature is represented by flowers, chrysalids, and butterflies.
In my practice, my preferred mode of expression is drawing and through recent years I have developed a unique technique that allows me to create very precise lines on the surface layer of the painting using an etching needle and a special wax-based painting medium. Often layer upon layer of drawings receding into the substrate of the painting medium. This way of working allows a more free approach to painting and at the same time a very detailed working practice.
