Statement

My work speaks to the solitary mood and the internal conversations that enfold me during the creative process.  They are infused with personal experiences and are informed by feminism and the question "where is the ME within MYSELF that I search?"  I create in order to find clarity within myself.  Using a variety of materials, I assemble this internal chaos into cohesive works.  The emotions may be in turmoil, but the intellect and hands create with precision.  My works speak of me, but they also ask the viewer to contemplate with introspection and perhaps experience a moment of revelation.
