Residency and exhibiti, Kulturcentrum, Sandviken, Sweden (June – July, 2014)

In Sandviken and Gastrikland I have been privileged to meet some extraordinarily creative women who work with arts, crafts, design, literature, health, education and plants and animals. I have collaborated with these women to produce a kind of portraiture. We have chosen materials and objects that give a sense of their own stories and also about the place in which they live.

These installations are based on their living and working environments rather than their appearance. My portraits are intended to embrace many aspects of the subjects life but also they are intended to have universal applicability so that the viewer may feel that these works also resonate with their own life.
