Statement

Making art is a catalyst for transformative growth, through which I deepen my understanding of the cycles of life, death, and renewed life.  With a distinct feminist perspective, I examine social concerns, spiritual issues, and the expression of the divine feminine. 
I celebrate the power of animals and nature to nurture the spirit and open the heart.  My creative process is also a psychological process towards self-realization.

I integrate an educational background in Fine Art Illustration and Gender Theory, to explore the constructs and layers of identity and to delve into the realm of the collective unconscious in search of higher truths.  Art is a powerful tool for change.   Art inspires us to feel deeper, see differently, and ultimately has the power to elevate our souls to a spiritual level. 
I wish for my artwork to be a vision of healing and joy. My creative voice is personal, political, spiritual, and magical.
