Cocktails, art, sex and femininity have all become inextricably linked for me this past year. Intensely personal, this work is a culmination of my experimentation with new mediums, adapting to a digital environment where the lines between reality and fantasy have become blurred and my experience as a mature student and female artist so far, where I have unfortunately experienced a level of ageism. My love of photography and the cinematic have come into play, with of course a nod to the '80's. These themes have converged to realise my ambition to have a multi-media installation, including performance, audience participation and most importantly for me, collaboration. 

 

My wonderful collaborators to whom I am eternally grateful:
