I believe my body art has become more about the abject body over time through

personal life experience. It is an exploration and realisation of the fallible nature of

the female form. The most recent works are audiovisual performances inspired by the

tragedy of loss and how the physical body fails us. They are about overcoming

adversity. I believe they emanate strength, resilience, vitality and the power to

overcome social stigma.

They also explore the nature of bodily movement by placing the female form in an

underwater environment. The work is a realisation of how water supports, restricts

and physically challenges the fallible female body.
