My current series of works “Dancing with the Environment” examines how I feel about my identity, what gender role-play means to me and domesticity within an agricultural setting. The concept for these works has an ambiguous undertone where humour isn’t lost, but the romantic notion of rural life is questioned.
I have a nursing background and I am always wanting to help others. Montessori concepts are part of my work experience and this is important across the board; ability is much more in focus than disability. I also have friends who have children with autism and so I understand the impact on family and friends. The body doesn’t need to be whole of the strength of love lives within. This tiny dancer has only one arm, but with love she can be a ballerina of her dreams.
