My practice explores, through use of Jung’s theories on the archetypal, the meanings of certain objects and images, drawing on those that are associated with the feminine. 
The mandala is a key concept within my works both metaphorically and literally. It produces a format and perimeter for me to work within,and reiterates the mandalas importance as a symbol within art and psychology. It has been used throughout millennia to signify the divine, symbolising protection, and as connotative of ‘The Great Mother.’
“While on one hand the Great Mother is creative and loving on the other she is destructive and hateful.”
Anthony Stevens, 1991.
