The digital collages are an assemblage of photographs of children, men and women to comprise a whole image that embodies the diversity and complexity of humanity.

In the series, Behind the Seen, girls are presented in exaggerated costume to provoke commentary on the hyperreal tropes of femininity. Her titular series is an appropriation of the theatrical idiom, ‘behind the scene’. For the artist, this references to what is behind the mere visible and behind the façade. Employing both Pop and contemporary elements, she uses embellishments of puffed sleeves, large collars and crinoline dresses to emphasise the enduring power of female canons. Her portrait compositions take from Old Master paintings, and the enchanting dichotomy that she creates is provocatively realised within a dreamy, playful atmosphere.
