I use image and narration to comment on contemporary perceptions of women with searingly honest self-portraits to deconstruct the conventions of female beauty. Much of my work employs the
use of mirrors, the metaphorical use of mirroring and the use of other objects in combinations I find meaningful. Consequently, my realist self-portraits honor a long-standing tradition of the representation of the figure as well as provide a conceptual statement about the nature of pictures and picturing. What is pictured? mirrored? reflected? Simultaneously, My complex paintings appeal to the senses and engage the intellect.
