Artist Statement:
The interests and development of my work span several traditional disciplines. My creations are best understood as complex multi-dimensional self-portraits containing strong introspective undercurrents regardless of the medium used. I use myself as model because I couldn’t ask it of anyone else; I wouldn’t get the same answer. I want to be the subject because the experiences that come from inside cannot be verbalized often in words. I am creating a private mythology by working in multiple medias because my voice is not limited in its expression. I rely heavily on the influence of materials and process to keep the work from becoming about empty pursuits of intellectual clichés or aesthetics. I pull inspiration from the concept that it is possible to tap into a collective conscious formed out of shared social experience deep within the human experience. I create exciting visual statements to explain my personal perceptions as a woman with social/sexual/spiritual concerns. Dreams and nightmares are woven amongst contemporary issues and wed to traditional aesthetics utilizing unique solutions in terms of time, place and materials.
