At first glance Making Up for Lost Time is a pink filled, slightly humorous series with heavy elements of masquerade. It is both of these things, but at a deeper level each image in this series is a fragment of a larger and revealing portrait of a melancholic psyche.

The use of pink in the series is a way of clambering to make up for events missed out on in the past. An accidental form of childhood feminism caused a refusal to participate in specifically feminine activities. This series is made in response to these regrets. Now over-compensating and excessively re-staging events (real or imagined) finally fulfills these fantasies.
