The majority of my screen prints are printed onto newsprint. The large amount of them is to show the same celebratory feeling as my embroidery hoop pieces and they are on newsprint because I wanted them to have an element of vulnerability to them. Everything I have done during my making process as been deliberate to show female empowerment which stems from a need of my own empowerment as a woman and also as a training artist.
The self portrait created before all my other drawings was influenced by the great Frida Kahlo. I am normally very abstract with my self portraits because of a great influence from Tracey Emin but wanted to experiment with showing my face like Kahlo as a way to try and develop the self portraits I keep creating.
