Artist Statement

The stuff of a woman's life has a way of building up; dishes, laundry, bills, dryer sheets, memories, photos, dust, paperwork, sketches of her daughters, wounds, rewards, sickness and health. I have long been interested in the way a bit of our spirit lingers on the things that we touch and how these things tell our story long after we're gone. My work often combines painting with a wide array of collage materials.

A Chicago ArtScope review of my work once stated, "she appears to reveal an additional level of perception in her series: the act is always at the fore and it is the spirit of the dancer, emerging in a gesture and motion, which transforms the dancer. The dancer sheds the mundane and gains beauty in dancing and the painting captures that instant."
