'Herstory' is a personal piece - one figure struggling, one figure looking up and dreaming. There are elements of bubbles of play and fantasy, and others about not so nice stories. I wanted to include my love of fashion, fairy tale, of magical realism, while also recognizing a kind of sadness. It is about hope and colour and form.... about painting and femininity itself.

I made this as an approach to adding more surreal/magical toy like elements to my painting. I collaged some pieces together alongside the figure and pulled all the elements together. 'Punch' is from Punch and Judy; a symbol of fun but also menace. The figure has woken up to the fact that he is riding on her neck, staring out at the moment of awakening. She herself is full of life, and full of fight. She is the one who wears the 'wife beater' vest, the boxing bandage on her fist, and a defiantly colourful headscarf. Punch is about to be punched back.

This painting celebrates my love of painting hands, flesh, and details of lace and other intricate fabrics. It is about creativity saving one's soul. She has reclaimed a crown and taken a paint brush as sceptre. The detail on the fabric of her dress is joyful and meditative at the same time; it expresses an optimism. The girl has triumphed because of her creativity, it is regal and powerful for her; she has control of her destiny because of it.
