The bubble is a potent metaphor. It has links to economic boom
and bust, as well as isolation, loneliness and separation. But a bubble can also be a place of comfort and safety; an environment where we can enter a state of flow or hyperfocus.

It’s part of the photographer’s ongoing investigations into human emotion, which combine elements from fine art – like abstraction and surrealism – with the crisp, bold aesthetics of fashion photography. She shows a consistent appreciation of colour and form, with splashes of ink, metallic paint and geometric shapes adding texture
