My work has investigated the experience of parenting two young adolescents. The majority of my work this year has been informed by my interest in the sea arch structure, which I identify with as a mother figure. It seemed to represent something of my experience of motherhood: A solid headland reshaped by currents. 
The progression of this work -using drawing, printmaking and animation - has gone from understanding the mother sea arch not as the site of subtraction but instead as the site of transformation: Where reciprocal affection and care has reshaped without detracting.
