Statement

Imagine waking up one day and everything you thought you knew about yourself had changed. Going through the menopause was a frightening experience, nothing worked like it used to, my tastes had changed, my mind had changed, my body had changed, everything was alien and on top of that, I now/also felt invisible to the wider world. 

‘Not my body, not my mind’  is a series of works that explore of the terror of waking up changed and my two year journey to find out who I now was.

My practice focuses on realising the somatic feelings and experiences of being a professional woman over 50.   Due to the diverse nature of these feelings, I choose different media or genre depending on what I need to convey.   If I feel strongly about something, I will make a piece of art to explore those feelings, in an effort to understand myself.   Often working at the edges, liminal spaces and liminal times are dangerous, uncomfortable, chaotic places.
