ARTIST STATEMENT

I am intrigued by the human condition and the energy of physical, emotional and spiritual spaces. Through abstraction I respond to, explore and question the natural world and human experience. 

While many of my works are purely abstract, some are theme-based. My series,“Protect. Nurture. Release.,” centers on the complex mother-child dynamic. I am interested in how the struggle between opposing forces and an ever-changing shift in roles, is what shapes the mother-child relationship. I am intrigued by the ‘letting go’ that is necessary to realize human potential, and the feelings of both loss and joy that are an integral part of transitions. 

Recently, I began creating works in response to the stories of local women who have faced adversity and retained, or returned to, a sense of hope. The sculpture, paintings and prints in my series are inspired by their resilience.
