About the work

My work is concerned with longing, girlhood and defiance, underpinned by a practice of drawing. My studio is littered with these small charcoal drawings on card, washed with yellow ochre. The way charcoal can go on and off the card so easily allows me to think through drawing, to add and subtract, much like the surface of a monotype plate. They are made from observation from dolls I construct as models, and form the basis of etchings, monotypes and paintings. The titles of my works are pulled from poetry, lyrics, novels and overheard conversations, and reflect the inner landscape of the “sitters”.
This drawing, “Maybe I’m the same as all those men, writing songs of all their dreaming” became an etching of the same name, and was exhibited at London Original Print Fair, and a painting “She is All Traps” which was shown at Marlborough Gallery.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
