I am in love with the sea. I always have been, as long as I can think. I feel drawn to it, inexplicably so.
I am concerned with the relationship between the mother and the daughter, I dip into my memories and I am connecting these to my mother and the sea. She has named me after the blue sea and the black sky from her memories. My mother called me Da-mare Stella Lucia - a star by the sea (loosely translated from Italian).
The portraits are intimate glimpses of my Mother's body, a place which signalises home to me. My mother is my island and my stormy sea.
