Statement

Art for me is about looking inside and outside to nature and myself as an observer. It is the process of seeing life as a reflection, remembering what has been forgotten in our lives, and finding its symbolic transformation. Color, movement and texture combine to project a sense of communing with nature in my painting.

My torso project represents the woman as warrior. I’ve seen the “Terra cotta- Warriors “outside Xi’an, China, whose presence had an impact on me. I started thinking of the women I know, and of myself and came to believe women are the real warriors, now and throughout history.

My current sculptural work is inspired by consciously thinking of, and using patterns that define who we are and who we become. Each torso shows the female in all different types, sizes, and shapes, expressing their true individuality.

The Torso Project is casting women's upper torso in plaster. Each woman has their own story.  Women who are the warriors in the world, having many different types of relationships and various experiences, and they have conquered any tragedy that has affected their lives...all this, gives them a voice. Each has their own voice behind the torso
