Short Artist's Statement

My art intends to question the roles of women and women artists. My use of domestic and childhood materials and constructions of fabric and vintage apparel reveal the paradox of the life of a woman artist. I have embraced my love of the color pink and the vintage teal that stands for home and comfort. By questioning what femininity means to myself, I hope to offer a record of one-woman artist’s journey into acceptance and the embrace of the feminine spirit I have denied for years. Recent works visualize the depolarization of my artist/feminine self.
