I use handicrafts such as sewing, papier-mâché, and mixed media materials, to make sculpture. By recycling and repurposing I attempt to find meaning in the mundane detritus of life. The forms I create are often symbolic, humorous and animated.
As a painter I study the human form by attending live model sessions. Rather than rely only on accuracy and naturalism, I prefer to access my feelings about the human condition especially concerning the position of women in art history and the world as a whole.
In the past three years I have completed four public art murals. My style is whimsical and animated with a clear message. I enjoy working within thematic parameters, creating narratives and focusing on descriptive details.
My future plan is to continue searching for increasingly challenging public art opportunities that will encompass larger concepts, new media and techniques.
