About the theme - "Connection"

In this series of paintings, I am looking at the theme of connection through fashion and style as an incredibly nuanced form of communication.


Clothing can connect emotions and memories, it can help us to belong, or hide perceived flaws, take an ethical stance, or assimilate..

Fashion can be used to conform, to be a trailblazer, and can even be worn as a metaphorical amour to face the day.

The way we dress speaks to society and can help to connect with not only ourselves, but others, through providing an exterior fit, a tribe, or subculture, allowing a personal creative space and authenticity.
