Drawing is handwriting. It is revealing. Drawing is the path inward tapping on connections, ideas, observations, memory. As a child I drew, horses, then fashion then figures, later narratives. I learned by drawing from life, drawing/copying old masters in museums as I traveled. Drawing has been a constant in my life.
My work consists of series of prints, paintings or drawings that are open ended narratives. I think of my work as adult bedtime stories that ease the viewer into the darker mysteries of life, one picture at a time.
The layering of multiple techniques, print making, painting, drawing and digital mediums; mirrors my love of building images that integrate the past, the present, the tangible, the felt, the broken, the whole.
Recurring themes in my work are the transition from girl child to womanhood, at the table (connections at home), the price of silence (not speaking leads to not knowing, leads to forgetting, leads to lost connection), conversations (words the threads that connect), and children’s games (learning the rules of play).
