The Nest artworks are a subjective reflection of myself as a woman becoming a mother. The work therefore has a strong feminine quality and focuses significantly on the Maternal. The Nests symbolise a maternal womb; a place of safety, shelter and protection. Each Nest becomes a sacred place where any mother can safely shield and nurture her infant. The intense detail and aesthetic quality in the Nests reflect this ****** and compulsive nature of the female -The Maternal. The creation process of these Nests are also very significant. The natural materials are delicately collected, gathered and rummaged for. All these processes are essential and a significant feminine act. The natural media which is used in creating these nests is very metaphorical, referring to the notion of the caring and nurturing mother/ Mother Earth. This maternal womb-like environment is a place of exclusion, perhaps a ****** and desperate act of fear for separation anxiety.

I am willing to work as a freelance Art Director or Artist in any given project or assignment. I can be hired for art commissions or jobs where artistic practice is required and needed.

My interest is to work as an Art Director in the filming industry for films, adverts, music videos, programs etc. Where new ideas and concepts are required from a creative and artistic mind. Often in this industry the technique is there but enough creativity and an artistic eye and mind is often...
