Storytelling, myths, and religious iconography show us the possibilities of change, alchemical transmutations from the mundane life we lead. Through traditional imagery, text materials, and painting methodology, my work invites a questioning of the ideal. Paintings that hint at the seduction of beauty, jewels, and brocades cocoon then bind us into a misplaced serenity.
