Drawbridge’s large digital works are at once alluring and unsettling. She often uses imagery from popular culture and transforms this into works of art where passive gestures can exert a dominating presence.

Despite the contemporary context Drawbridge's work often suggests classical references, such as Bernini’s sculptural epic ‘Ecstasy of St Teresa’, as well as exploring questions of fantasy and fetishism in relation to visual representation.
 
Drawbridge was born in London in 1970, and studied BA Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art (2001), and MA Digital Arts at Camberwell College of Arts, with distinction (2007)
