My work over the last several years has focused on exploring figure narrative while utilizing mixed media in order to create texture in painting, drawing and sculpture. Color and form translates content, thereby revealing the multiple facets of female identity in the context of the sacred and the secular. While some work is a commentary on the experience of memory, social relationships, sexuality and fantasy, other work focuses on the nature of deity, culture and mythology. Experimenting with the application of paint, ink, pastel, charcoal, fiberglass, paper collage, fabric collage and fabric sculpture, I engage in a visceral and tactile relationship by using the medium to communicate my personal views.
