This is a body of work which has emerged from the Catholic Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary images. While a traditional Catholic images makes use of a stylised, love heart style heart, these images utilise a more “realistic” heart, subtly hinting to the fact that we are only mortal, and will die without hope of salvation.

I use hearts in my work to symbolise death, and conversley, life.
