Artist Statement

I am a classically trained American painter, fine art photographer, and encaustic and mixed media artist.

Each piece of artwork I create tells a story that may otherwise go untold. I layer by hand images I have captured in my original photography, drawings, paintings, and collected ephemera to create mixed-media pieces with subtle depth and dreamlike detail.

My two recent bodies of work, “Underworld” and “Motherland,” created during and in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, reflect my belief in the profound power of women to incubate, transmute, and then transcend beyond grief, loss, and fear in the alchemical processes of our innate strength and wisdom. We live on just like the mothers of our mothers before us and within us.
