In her recent paintings exploring rural and marginal urban fringe environments. people have begun to 'wander in' to the work.
It is many years since the human figure has featured in her work.
'I attribute their return to an increasing need to decode the remains of human activity that I find in the landscape and also to my work as a Scenographer.
I have grown used to seeing some human drama unfolding in front of the environments I have created. As a piece of drama seeks to explore human relationships and motivations, I am now seeking to show the shifting interplay between people, their environment and their technology - in seeking a sense of place, a sense of belonging and identity in the real, imagined and virtual environments they navigate.'
