My work remains focused on the exploration of the contemporary feminine character based on traditional, political and personal circumstances. The work, post-minimal and conceptual in nature, ranges from  two-dimensional and installation to performance and collaborative projects.  The content reveals an intimate commentary on a variety of  issues of the modern world, the role of women and personal life stories.  

  The choice of execution and materials is essential to accentuate the intent of each particular piece: hundreds of filled plastic garbage bags hung on shower hooks, draped washing machine tubing with sounds of home, paper packages constructed alongside volunteers, intimately photographed domestic portraits, drawings, paintings and interactive public works, all contributing to the larger collective dialogue they are inspired by.   

The ontological conceptualization of women continues to unfold in the twenty-first century.  Through my various work, I strive to create an awareness of how women have been defined in the past and the insight this knowledge offers us as we move forward.


after generation, our roles and duties as women are deeply ingrained in us.  Our identities and validations, often defined by others, leave us with inner conflicts.  Our mothers and grandmothers perpetuate definitions of us as women  that are created by society and religion, justifying their own roles and activities based on these expectations.  My work explores these dilemmas: the feminine character defined through beauty, clothing, social conduct, and religion; the stereotypical roles we assume as women, mothers, caretakers and professionals; and the myriad consequences we face as a result.

The materials I choose to work with accentuate the intent of each of my pieces. I use non-traditional materials, such as steel wool, tracing paper, natural twines and hair, for their inherent opposing qualities of delicacy and strength. Each may be used separately or in tandem with others in various objects, two-dimensional work, installations, and performance pieces. Through these various works, I strive to create an awareness of how women have been defined in the past and the insight this knowledge gives us as we move forward.
